Uplifting Community Asset

Community Events

Bangor: A City of Writers & Artists

Our members host a monthly Creative Coffee House Speaker Series featuring a writer or artist of prominence for the general public to enjoy and hear side-by-side with those in recovery. Individuals in recovery will organize these cultural events — celebrating Maine as a state of writers and artists. Once a year we present statewide awards to people in recovery for their own creative writing.  

“The Bangor Daily News is thrilled to provide a media sponsorship to Together Place Peer Run Recovery Center. We have made a point of describing and seeking solutions to substance use challenges in Maine through both our reporting and events, and see this sponsorship as an extension of that work.”

Stories of Maine Exhibit

Our curated Stories of Maine exhibit, Maine’s only museum of arts and literature, displays 68 images and stories of Maine writers and artists, some of which touch on an artist’s experience with recovery.

Neighborhood Revitalization

Once run-down, Together Place Peer Run Recovery Center is now an uplifting community asset. Two large colorful murals of Maine athletes and historical icons adorn the outer walls of our building and have become community landmarks.

Together Place is taking a leading role in community development through the arts and neighborhood revitalization.
