Songs Beyond Borders 2
Songs Beyond Borders 2 is formatted as a songwriters circle, a relaxed performance where songwriters share stories about creating their music and perform selected songs. The artists in the show promise an excellent evening of entertainment. Denny Breau from Maine is a triple threat: a consummate picker, evocative songwriter, and an engaging vocalist. Emilia Dahlin sings mesmerizing tales (complete with Greek myths, robotic messiahs, epic floods, and tax evaders) with raw, rootsy folk and dynamic jazz vocals. Caroline Savoie from New Brunswick attracted the attention of more than 10 million TV viewers while competing on The Voice: La plus belle voix (France's version of The Voice). Danny Boudreau from Petit-Rocher NB is one of Canada's most respected singer-songwriters. He has topped Canadian charts and performed in Europe, Africa and the United States.
Attendees of Juice get into this event free of charge as a part of their Juice ticket. Additional available seats will be sold to the public for $22 each.

PechaKucha events celebrate the creativity within our community, through visual storytelling and a unique presentation style. Eight, pre-selected individuals, share their work, their ideas, and their creative process during a 20-second-per-image, 20-image slideshow.
PechaKucha Night was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 as an event for young designers to meet, network, and share their work with the public. It's become a global celebration, with events happening in hundreds of cities around the world, inspiring creatives worldwide. Drawing its name from the Japanese term for "chit chat", the presentation format is based on a simple idea: 20 seconds per image, over 20 images shown. The format is crisp, concise and rapid fire, making each presentation exciting and fresh.

Experiential Tours Description
Option 1: Rockland Harbor Trail & Downtown Tour
Preservation and Innovation, Healthy and Accessible Downtowns
Take a morning walk along the Harbor Trail and Main Street to learn how Rockland is using its Working Waterfront to its advantage, being innovative in the arts, embracing its historic districts and downtown all while being walkable, healthy and authentic. We will be stopping along way for discussion points, ending at a local business for a final wrap up. This tour is being led by Lorain Francis from the Maine Development Foundation and Gordon Page from Rockland Main Street.
Option 2: From Maine to Main Street
Agriculture, Aquaculture, Fisheries, and Food Production
Come immerse yourself in downtown Rockland’s vibrant food scene during a leisurely-paced walking tour of less than two miles. Witness how Community, Technology, Entrepreneurship, Sustainability, and the Arts are all being utilized to successfully produce, distribute, and sell Maine’s food. While we sample some delectable treats at several businesses, we will hear about the significance of the Agriculture, Aquaculture, Fisheries, and Food Production cluster in Maine along with the assistance that some of these venues are able to utilize to help them succeed.
Option 3: Innovation Engineering Workshop
Using Innovation Engineering to Think About Sustainability
What does sustainability mean to your organization? Staying in business for the long run? Using resources in an environmentally responsible way? Energy efficiency? Diversity and inclusion as a workforce strategy?
During this workshop, we will use Innovation Engineering (TM) tools to help you think about sustainability for your situation. This will be a highly interactive session. You will get to think about your own goals, but also help others clarify theirs. You will leverage the diversity of the other participants to come up with ideas to tackle your opportunities and challenges, and learn ways to systematically make progress towards these goals. Expect to re-connect with your creative side and have fun as well.
Innovation Engineering is a system for creating a system of innovation in your organization by everyone, everywhere, every day that results in increased speed and decreased risk. It is based in the principles of Deming, and includes education in what, why and how to innovate, creates alignment of strategy and operations, enables the courage to fail and continually learn, builds capacity through collaboration, and most importantly, creates value and profit! This workshop is being led by Catherine Renault, a Certified Innovation Engineering Black Belt, and owner of Innovation Policyworks, located in Brunswick, ME.
