Stay Connected & Keep Creating with MAC: Blog 4

Thu 16 April 2020

This week, we're sharing your beautiful artwork sent in for our Easter weekend art challenge, sharing details for our music-making campaign families can get involved with from home, and information about our brand new podcast.

Music-making family activity: MAC Makes Music Asks You!

Whilst our building is closed, we'd like to see how our audiences are being musically creative at home. Get involved with our new MAC Makes Music Asks You campaign for children and young people, and let us know how you're making music during lockdown.

We want to know...

1. What music do you like?

2. How do you like to make music?

3. If you could do anything musical, what would it be?

You could make a video, write a song, or even draw a picture with your answers!

Upload your responses to social media and tag us - we'll be sharing some of the entries to our website.

Take a look at our MAC Makes Music team's video for some inspiration...

What's the view from your window? 

Thank you for sharing the view from your windows! As part of our Easter weekend art challenge, we asked you to draw, paint and create a picture of what you can see from your windows during lockdown.

We were blown away by your beautiful artworks - thank you for sharing them with us!
