MAC's Artistic Vision

We are proud to be a charity which improves the lives of Stoke - on - Trent citizens and in particular young people. Our focus will always be on those less advantaged.

The artistic programming and support for those organizations who base their artistic activities at the MAC is the responsibility of four part- time artistic directors, experts in their own field and committed to the cultural development of Stoke - on - Trent.

Debbie McAndrew: Debbie will demonstrate that at the core of all artistic activity there is a writer and will develop a rolling programme which gives opportunities for young people primarily in Stoke-on-Trent to engage in a writing experience.

Rob Marsden: Rob will devise the MAC theatre vision by developing a programme whilst supporting amateur dramatic groups with practical and technical advice.

Matt Hubbard: Matt will initiate and develop a programme which involves the use of MAC facilities and develop film programme themes and seasons which provide access and appreciation of the contribution of film to the arts but which also strongly reflects the views and wishes son Stoke-on-Trent people including the young and disadvantaged.

Ben McManus: Ben will demonstrate how digital enhancement changes and extends the artistic experience. this could include working alongside Matt on a season of films demonstrating the increasing technical sophistication of film images.
