Community Projects

Our Learning & Participation team at the MAC work every day to build relationships, and interaction with the arts in our local community. This is where we document our community work.


“Untitled” (For Belfast)

“Untitled” (For Belfast) is a unique and exciting community project which was designed by the MAC to coincide with “Untitled” (For Jeff), an artwork by Felix Gonzalez-Torres. 

Lilliput Now

Lilliput Now was one of the MAC’s cross-community projects, inspired by the themes of Big Telly’s & the MAC’s production of Gulliver.
