The MAC (Metropolitan Arts Centre) is a cultural hub; selecting, creating and mixing up music, theatre, dance and art.
The world-class venue in Belfast's Cathedral Quarter is home to all kinds of exhibitions, theatre performances, experimental works and endless goings-on. The MAC offers something for all ages and interests. That is why they jam-packed with diverse and extraordinary things to see and do.
The MAC is a cultural hub and a vital shared space in Belfast. Open 363 days per year, the MAC offers an eclectic programme of visual art, theatre, dance, family workshops and lots more.
The MAC is an award winning facility that has two theatres (a 350 seater and a 120 seater), three art galleries, one rehearsal space, one dance studio, three education and workshop rooms, four offices for resident art groups, one restaurant and bar (NATIVE by Yellow Door), one artist-in-residence studio and one permanent artwork.
The Permanent Present is the MAC's only permanent artwork, a major sculptural work by Irish artist Mark Garry commissioned by The Thomas Devlin Fund and the MAC. The sculpture consists of 400 metal wires in the main foyer of the MAC, creating a spectrum of colour that travels through the space akin to a beam of light refracting and reflecting. The installation reflects The Thomas Devlin Fund's commitment to highlighting the futility of violence as well as the hopes and aspirations of the young people. MAC Moments
