Maine Farmland Trust Residencies (Due Mar. 1)

The Joseph A. Fiore Art Center at Rolling Acres Farm is a program of Maine Farmland Trust (MFT) that actively connects the creative worlds of farming, conservation and the arts.

The purpose of the Fiore Art Center is to stimulate and advance the dialogue between human and environment within the context of agriculture and today’s culture at large. We hope to instill passion for preservation through the arts, create awareness and build community.

We do this through exhibitions and public educational events, through research and application of ecologically sustainable farming practices and by hosting residencies for artists on a historic farm. 

The Falcon Foundation – holders of the work of the late Joseph A. Fiore – generously supports our programs. Fiore was an artist and environmentalist. He and his wife Mary lived on a nearby farm in Jefferson, ME and supported MFT for many years. Much of Fiore’s art was donated to MFT and can be viewed at the Fiore Art Center.    

In 2019, we will be offering nine residency positions: six visual art residencies, one poetry residency, one performing arts residency and one academic writing residency.

*One of our visual arts residency placements is for an out-of-state artist, one for an international artist, and one for a Native American artist living in Maine.

**Please note that there are different applications forms if you are a member or non-member of Maine Farmland Trust.**
