Artist pass

Are you an experienced student?
Take the next step in your learning with an artist pass at MAC.

For experienced, self-driven artists looking to progress, our Artist Pass unlocks affordable studio access to spark innovation. With our flexible Artist Pass scheme, you can have affordable access to our Dance, Music, Visual Arts and Design studios to develop your ideas and practice independently.

The Artist Pass is for creative individuals who are experienced and confident in their own practice, to work without guidance in our studio spaces - though you're often sharing the work space with other Artist Pass holders who can offer helpful advice.



Apply for an artist pass

To apply, please complete the application form and read the terms and conditions below.

All we ask is that you have previously attended a MAC learning & participation course (to advanced level where applicable) in the appropriate discipline and/or have been involved in a MAC project and/or have a relationship with MAC through a programme area and can provide a referee.

Artist passes are currently available for individual users only.

A limited number of artist passes are available and, following a successful application process, will be issued on a first-come, first-served basis.
