Program Description

A program of the Maine Humanities Council, Maine Speaks supports individuals and organizations bring people in their community together to learn from a gifted speaker who shares their expertise and lived experience in engaging ways.

Branding and Publicity

After you’ve been awarded a Maine Speaks event, we strongly encourage you to let your community know with an announcement online—on social media, in your e-newsletter, on your website, etc.

When dates and details are confirmed, your MHC Point Person will provide you with a branded flyer and web image specific to your Maine Speaks event(s). We ask that you do not alter the provided MHC branded images. For options that better meet your needs, please contact our Communications Coordinator.

If it’s your organization’s policy to include your logo on publicity materials, you are welcome to create your own include the Maine Humanities Council Logo.

Forms and Reflections

We work closely with speakers and coordinators in order to create every Maine Speaks event—and it is important to us that the process of working with us and with your community go well!  Your reflection on the whole process helps us understand what’s most useful and supportive and what works less well, so that we can keep this program vital.

Audience Survey

We read and use what audiences tell us! Please help us report to our funders, and keep this program growing and improving by encouraging your audiences to fill out this survey. If your event is held on Zoom, please take a moment as the program is ending to drop the link into chat!
