Based on the results of the 2022 Community Feedback Survey and the IMA Board’s goals and vision, we are planning a smaller version of the Festival, to be presented 2024.
For many years, Island Mountain Arts ran a summer festival in Wells called ArtsWells Festival Of All Things Art. Artists, musicians, and attendees came from near and far to celebrate what Wells had to offer.
The festival has not happened in person since the beginning of the COVID pandemic. In its final years, it had successfully grown so large that it began to put serious strain on the broader community and its infrastructure.
In August of 2022, Island Mountain Arts ran a Community Feedback Survey Results Summary -> Click here to open a PDF of the Survey Results.
In January of 2023, we made an announcement based on the results of that survey and the IMA Board’s goals and vision, that we are planning a smaller version of the Festival, to be presented in 2023 or 2024.
On Feb 8th, 2023, we hosted an in-person community meeting about the 2023 IMA season in Wells.
