Artist Development

The MAC is dedicated to nurturing Northern Ireland based artists and creatives by devising development opportunities for emerging and established artists as well as pathways through the MAC’s annual programme of events, performances, and festivals, allowing for national and international engagement. We aim to create accessible opportunities across art forms that foster experimentation and innovation in a supported environment.

Hatch Programme

Hatch & Scratch provides local artists, at any point in their career working in live performance or interested in exploring live performance with the opportunity to scratch, explore, and experiment with the most embryonic of ideas in a supported environment.
