Together through arts and creativity

More than ever in these extraordinary times our community needs arts, culture and creativity.

To support our artists, creatives and cultural workers we’ve curated a handy list of resources, funding and support to keep you up to date. 

We are excited that MAG&M and Creative Space have re-opened again, with a limited number of visitors and restricted opening times. With social distancing guidelines still in place, we will continue to reorganise our programming so that it can be accessed online via the website and social media. Visit us at the gallery and then stay connected through our online exhibitions, films on art and music, creative learning opportunities and more at MAG&M Online​​​​.

We will keep bringing you links to exciting local arts and culture, creative sector support and artists’ opportunities through Creative News and MAG&M News, so subscribe to our mailing list to keep up-to-date with the latest happenings across the sector. Please get in touch if you have something web-based or online you can share. We look forward to hearing about how you have been creating and adapting through this challenging time.
