St. John Valley Creative Economy Project – Strengthening Our Communities and Economy Through Culture and Place.

This was a two-year research effort designed to identify opportunities, challenges, and potential strategies for developing and better leveraging the indigenous assets of culture and place in the St. John Valley of northern Maine. The project’s intent was also to begin a conversation on strengthening leadership capacity and fostering a positive climate for youth retention and rural innovation.
