The Maine Craft Interview Project brings emerging craft artists together with established Maine craft artists in an interview, led by the emerging artist. The project serves to support and engage emerging artists by providing a platform and structure to access firsthand craft career experiences one-on-one. The emerging artist designs interview questions and interviews an established artist of their choosing.
