Studio B uses art and story to cultivate individual well-being and build stronger communities.
Studio B seeks to empower marginalized and isolated populations through art experiences, exhibitions and community programs that address pressing social issues while also highlighting our shared humanity.
Through our programming, we aim to connect individuals with each other and their communities, educating participants about available support resources and facilitating access.
Our current project, My Story, Your Story, Our Story, takes aim at the crisis of youth isolation and alienation in rural Maine. Beginning with art workshops customized for various participant cohorts (teens, pre-teens, parents and elders), it culminates with a large-scale public program designed to foreground the youth, allowing them to share their stories and giving them the platform and audience to make a difference in their communities.
