Bookings and Submissions

Guidelines and Procedure for submitting material to SPACE

We evaluate events based on thoughtfulness and creativity as well as appropriateness to SPACE's vision and mission. Because we receive numerous proposals, we can't always respond to everyone. Your patience and understanding is appreciated. We thank you for the time it takes to submit your work, and know that while you may not recieve an immediate reply, sometimes timely opportunities present themselves for thematic or responsive programs at a later date and having your work on file is tremendously helpful.

Before submitting your idea, please take a moment to think about SPACE's mission:
To support contemporary arts projects, champion artists, and encourage an open exchange of ideas.

We prefer to work on events that add to our community, especially events that might not otherwise get presented in Maine.

We strive to present artistic excellence and we believe that artists should be paid for their work whenever possible.

Please note that we generally like to hear / see content before presenting it at SPACE. Typically, we're booking events 8-20 weeks ahead. We occasionally book last minute events and we occasionally book months and months ahead.




SPACE is a nonprofit organization that supports contemporary arts projects, champions artists, and encourages an open exchange of ideas.

Gallery hours:
W - F 10a - 6p | Sat 12 - 4p
