COLLABORATING PARTNERS

This Eastport Telecommuter Recruitment site was made with the help of the following: the City of Eastport Telecommuter ad hoc committee of volunteers, The Tides Institute & Museum of Art, the Eastport Arts Center, the Eastport Area Chamber Of Commerce, The Quoddy Tides, Peavey Memorial Library, and many residents and friends of the city who contributed photos, suggestions and more. Special thanks to Robin Farrin of Coastal Maine Photography and Edward French of The Quoddy Tides for the use of their extensive archives of photographs that so beautifully capture our community and its people.

The Creative Edge concept and tagline is an outgrowth of a year-long collaborative project led by the Tides Institute & Museum of Art, funded initially by an inaugural matching Creative Communities = Economic Development (CCED) grant from the Maine Arts Commission. Other project partners include the City of Eastport, Eastport Area Chamber of Commerce, Sunrise County Economic Council,  Port of Eastport, Eastport Arts Center, Border Historical Society, Waponahki Museum, and Peavey Memorial Library. Subsequent activities have been funded, in part, by the national ArtPlace initiative.
