Many of you will have read that our funding from the city council is being cut by 70% from April. We have been here for 56 years and intend to be here for a lot longer so our message is clear:

If you love us, help us. Use us.

Midlands Arts Centre is a registered charity that wants as many people as possible to enjoy art. A donation of only £3 today will ensure that we can keep providing great art, for everyone. Thank you.

Thanks for your support.

Debbie Kermode (CEO and Artistic Director)

Registered charity no. 528979.

Many people have been introduced to the arts at MAC, including some of our more famous ‘alumni’ and friends.

“The Midlands Arts Centre is such a special place for me. It introduced me to all forms of art and allowed me to just turn up and absorb it. It’s because of that building I do what I do.”
