The Magic Lantern 4-H Innovation Center is a creative hub of activity with a focus on youth aspirational programs in literacy and the arts, math, design, and engineering, as well as local food systems. These program areas lend themselves well to cross-discipline learning, creative thinking, and problem-solving. The goal is to preserve the theater while utilizing the non-profit revenue-generating operations to fund local youth education. The project runs through a local collaboration between the Maine 4-H Foundation and the University of Maine Cooperative Extension in partnership with a local community board.

Be sure to share your ideas and help us learn what is popular with our community. If you wish to schedule a special program, or have requests for specific activities and programs please contact Laurie Bragg at: [email protected]

Below are our upcoming events.  We look forward to seeing you here!
