MAC BIRMINGHAM EXISTS TO MAKE INNOVATIVE, CREATIVE ARTS ACTIVITIES AN IMPORTANT PART OF PEOPLE'S LIVES.

Founded 1962

  • Mission statement

    During the 1950s Birmingham residents Mollie Randle and her husband John English had a vision: to create an arts centre for local children and young people. In 1962, their dream was realised when Birmingham City Council granted them 8. 6 acres of land in Cannon Hill Park and The Midlands Arts Centre for Children and Young People opened its doors for the first time. Mac – as it became known - was ahead of its time. With a belief in the value of lifelong learning and participation in the arts, mac birmingham continues to bring together artists, both aspiring and professional, to create new work across a wide range of art forms.

    Since it was founded, mac birmingham has introduced over 10 million people to the arts, and is now used by over 25% of the city's population each year. We enjoy strong relationships with our two key stakeholders – Birmingham City Council and Arts Council England, West Midlands - and remain true to our founding mission.
