Job Opportunities

Village Canoe (Bangor, Maine)

An artist residency in the form of a canoe expedition. We’ll have 10 artists, myself and the need for a Maine Guide to paddle from Bangor to Brooklin, over 10 days in August. The plan is Fri night Aug 23rd  - Sun afternoon Sept 1, and ideally I’m looking for a Maine guide:
• Who is Rec and Sea Kayak certified
• Would be comfortable leading 12 people from river to sea, and paddling in Pen. Bay
• Would be comfortable/excited in the 28’ and 31’ fiberglass canoes we’re paddling
• Ideally is an artist, because the project is only grant-funded and I have lean budget for guide stipend*, but hoping that the trip would creatively excite them, being involved in more than just a “guide trip” because we’re going to show artwork in Belfast in September in a free public art show, and beyond.
Note from MASKGI: Please contact Village Canoe for compensation details, but just to be clear this is a paid engagement at a reasonable rate.
