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 organisations 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 demonstrates that at the core of all artistic activity is a writer. Debbie is developing a rolling programme which gives opportunities for young people primarily in Stoke-on-Trent to engage in a writing experience.

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

Matt Hubbard: Matt is developing film programmes, themes and seasons which provide access and appreciation of the contribution of film to the arts. This also strongly reflects the views and wishes of the people of Stoke-on-Trent including the young and disadvantaged.

Ben McManus: Ben is demonstrating how digital enhancement changes and extends the artistic experience. This includes working alongside Matt on a season of films demonstrating the increasing technical sophistication of film images and much more.
