In support of current County, State, and Federal governmental and health agency recommendations, Maui Arts & Cultural Center has postponed all public programming until further notice. This decision is guided by our commitment to help ensure the health and safety of the entire community. We made this decision in coordination with our many partners in the visual and performing arts, artists both local and global, island vendors, schools, and our MACC employees and volunteers.

For current information on what will be available for the 2020-21 school year, CLICK HEREMore information will be posted as it becomes available.
