I Believe In Freewill

Project Freewill was founded in 2019 & is a fully incorporated nonprofit located in an historic baptist church from 1837 in New Portland, Maine.


Our mission is to amplify the voices of underground artists in Maine & to unite our community through art & activism. 

With your help & donations, we plan to repair the building this winter, & hope to reopen Summer 2022 with an eclectic range of events showcasing the incredible work of underground artists, poets, activists & musicians across the beautiful state of Maine. Until then, check out our Podcast & Radio Shows.

We help artists from falling through the cracks by getting their works to the world, & by giving them a chance to speak out & speak loud. 

What's NEW @ ProjectFreewill

                              Our Wishlist:

  • Fix the ceiling in order to reopen to the public as a venue and community arts space

  • Fund our ongoing programming, all of which currently is volunteer run and operated, including the Project Freewill Prison Project, where we'll bring music instruction and instruments to the Women's Facility in Wyndham Maine.

                  Thank you for your support

So far with your help, we've fixed a massive hole in the roof & set up a basic  recording studio where we've been doing safely distanced interviews, radio segments, & musical collaborations.

We're halfway there. Please email us if you want to volunteer your labor or have any good leads on building materials or instrument donations
