The heart of the coordinator’s role is inviting people to spend time together for a particular, shared purpose, and setting things up so that their time together can be as nourishing and rewarding as possible.

Maine Humanities provides a number of tools and resources to support Maine Speaks host sites as they gather an audience and handle logistics.
