Visual storytelling is at the center of education at Maine Media Workshops + College in Rockport, which celebrated its 40th anniversary last year. Dedicated to fostering “creativity, culture, and human communication in the world,” the school provides degree and certificate programs, workshops, intensives, and cooperative labs for students pursuing work in fine arts and media-related professions.

MMWC transferred five scholarship funds to MaineCF for management in 2013-2014. These funds honor distinguished professors and photographers associated with the school. The community foundation now manages more than 200 nonprofit funds and more than 450 scholarships.
