Our Artist in Residence space is a unique facility that brings international, national and home-grown artists from a range of genres to the MAC.
Igniting creative collaboration with the MAC’s artistic partners, audiences and local communities, the Artist in Residence programme is helping to shape the cultural landscape in Northern Ireland.
We are pleased to welcome Artistic Director and Producer Anna Leckey to the MAC Artist in Residence space.
Current Artist in Residence: Anna Leckey
Anna Leckey is the Founding Artistic Director and Producer of Three's Theatre Company - the new kids on the block who are doing things differently. Anna was previously our Artist In Residence in January 2018 for 3 months when we supported her sell-out production Date Show, which offered Belfast something different, with Date Show being a promenade production with multiple journeys throughout the experience.
Since then her team have worked to create Date Show After Dark (Bullitt, Oct 2018), 3 Stories (The MAC, Nov 2018) and Now For the North (The Lyric, May 2019). There are big plans of things to come. Now in her year long residency, Anna is on a mission to bring up the artists within her generation that need the opportunities.
"You gotta leap and the net will appear, luckily so far the net has been mostly made up by the supportive team at the MAC."
