In this week's episode of Elevating Voices Maine , we’re sharing the stories of Indigo Arts Alliance and Somali Bantu Community Association.

Indigo Arts Alliance, founded by Marcia and Daniel Minter, embodies a Black-led, multiracial approach to the rich intersections of citizenship, community-building, and creativity. IAA’s mission is to build global connections by bringing together Black and Brown artists from diverse backgrounds to engage in their creative process.

Last year, the Somali Bantu Community Association (SBCA) and Agrarian Trust formed the Little Jubba Central Maine Agrarian Commons (AC), a transformative new model for community-centered land tenure. The long-standing dream for secure farmland became a reality for this group of immigrant farmers in May 2020 when they found their perfect farm, 104 acres in Wales, Maine.
