Creative Communities Exchange (CCX) 2013
The Maine Indian Basketmakers Alliance (a non profit arts organization serving Wabanaki basketmakers and artists) and Four Directions Development Corporation (a Native American community development organization serving the Native peoples of Maine) worked together to help artists from Maine tribal communities through the Wabanaki Artisan Initiative. This initiative helps Native artists from the Passamaquoddy, Penobscot, Micmac, and Maliseet tribes (collectively known as the Wabanaki) learn business skills, promote their work and themselves as artists, and find markets for their artwork.
