Southern Aroostook, Northern Penobscot & Northern Washington Counties
The Regional Creative Council is leading an exciting effort to gather information about the creative and cultural resources in the Tri-County Region of Southern Aroostook, Northern Washington and Northern Penobscot Counties. We are developing a plan that will better connect the arts and culture to our community. We’re looking for information and opinions from as many residents as possible; we’d appreciate if you could take the time to share your thoughts!
The project to develop a Cultural Plan is being coordinated by the Regional Creative Council (RCC). The plan will cover the Tri-County Region including Southern Aroostook, Northern Penobscot, and Northern Washington Counties. The Cultural Plan process is funded by grants recently awarded to the RCC by the Maine Arts Commission, Maine Community Foundation, and the Betterment Fund.

REGIONAL CREATIVE COUNCIL
Connecting People With Our Heritage, Culture, and Place
The Regional Creative Council (RCC) was recently formed to enhance the artistic, cultural, educational and economic climate within our entire Tri-County Region of Southern Aroostook, Northern Penobscot and Northern Washington Counties. The RCC is engaging artisans, government representatives, and community advocates to evaluate the cultural needs of our Tri-County Region. While the RCC was initiated by the Houlton Community Arts Center Council, Southern Aroostook Cultural Arts Project, Town of Houlton Community Development Department, Cary Library and the Houlton Higher Education Center, our regional meetings have included representatives from throughout the entire geographical area.
