Maui Arts & Cultural Center
Maui Arts & Cultural Center (MACC) is the most comprehensive multi-disciplinary arts center in Hawaii, with five theaters — from a 5,000-seat amphitheater to a 250-seat black box and pa (hula stage), all accessible to people with disabilities. Annually, more than 200,000 people attend more than 1,700 events. Since opening in 1994, MACC has become the only arts presenter in Hawaii that produces a diverse range of offerings year-round, bringing high- quality artists from around the world, as well as the finest from throughout the state. forty percent of our diverse and multicultural season offerings are free to our community.
We present a wide range of genres: work that is easily accessible, work that pushes boundaries, authentic work of Hawaii‘ and the Oceanic regions of the Pacific, work that reflects the stories and cultures of Maui’s multi-ethnic populations, and popular entertainment that draws a broad-based local audience. Comprehensive residency activities reach nearly 9,400 residents (6 percent of our population). MACC has commissioned and produced new work by Hawaiian artists who have toured statewide, nationally and internationally. Annually more than 17,000 students and 500 classroom teachers participate in MACC’s nationally recognized arts education programs.
