Events and Happenings for Intermedia

Check out our calendar for upcoming events.

Part of the Intermedia experience at UMaine is the availability of a rich variety of offerings for both professional development and personal or community activities. These include workshops, lectures, video and film presentations, visiting artists, performances and a variety of other activities that offer opportunities for professional and artistic interactions. We also have numerous social gatherings some casual like weekly gatherings for open discussions and interactions, and planned gatherings like our start of the year dinner, and our Spring BBQ. The Program also sponsors a late Fall exhibition and presentation of student work, like the 2011 Intermedia Open house exhibitions, open studios, presentations and performances, and our yearly Without Borders Festival
