We have over a decade of experience and have worked with many young talents and local heroes along with world class artists and craftspeople whose passion inspires us to support the creative mindset and lifestyle.
Our Philosophy... At E2A, we believe that humankind's greatest assets and legacies is its diverse culture. At the heart of this culture are the arts and we feel that through independent expression and true creativity we can help to grow our culture in a positive direction. By providing a platform from which people can express themselves, E2A is committed to strengthening an existing and rapidly expanding worldwide community of people interested in social consciousness and spiritual awareness, global participation, and the expression of the inherent freedoms we feel we have as living beings.
Our History... Our first website launched in the spring of 2004 after 2 years of informal R&D, big-picture conceptualizing, and deep retrospection. Earth Day 2005 marked our first public showing in a casual but prominent display of creative colors that were splashed on Munjoy Hill in Portland, Maine on the Fourth of July of that year- a small group of determined young artists standing in the crowds that night became the humble roots of the E2A happening...
The Evolution Sound System in July of 2006 was the inaugural annual E2A Summer block party held in Portland and the first full scale Evolve2Advance production. Recent successes include the Green Woods Reggae Revival co-hosted along with Avenue Media at Mt. Abram Summer '15, and as support for the 2015 Maine Hip-Hop Summit, brought to you courtesy of One Works.
The list keeps growing and we continue to meet wonderful people along the way. Today we create original art, apparel, fine prints and more. We produce & promote live art, music and food events featuring poster design, printing and live painting. We hope to meet you soon.
