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.
