The First Coast is a mobile studio / exhibition space that will travel to year-round coastal communities in Maine during the off-season. Through collaborations and workshops, residents will engage in conversation about their community’s working maritime identity and personal perspective of place. The First Coast is an initiative to collect sounds, stories, images, and ideas that contribute to a collective coastal memory and seek to reconstruct existing narratives and mythologies of both Maine and Mainers.
