About: First opened in 1962, Midlands Arts Centre – also known as MAC – is a pioneering arts complex for everyone. Our mission: to make art an important part of people’s lives.

MAC’s ethos is based on a set of values which inform the whole of its activities. The tensions within the values help to shape the organisation’s work and add an extra, creative spark to its activities. MAC values the following:

  • artistically experimental activities – and ones striving to engage with their audiences;
  • celebrating diversity – and strengthening social cohesion;
  • offering equal opportunities to everyone – and recognising the uniqueness of artistic talent;
  • increasing the accessibility of the arts – and respecting their complexity;
  • giving users and audiences more involvement in, and control over, programming – and introducing them to new challenges and innovations;
  • helping artists to find their own, unique voice – and to forge productive partnerships with other artists and the general public;
  • making the most of the social benefits of the arts – and valuing the pleasure people gain from their own individual artistic expression.#

We work together with Soundabout choirs in the West Midlands.
