Who We Are

MASC brings the arts and culture alive for over 100,000 children, youth, teachers and seniors each year.With a passionate commitment to provide schools and communities with experiences of artistic excellence and creative process, MASC proudly represents a roster of over 60 professional artists. All MASC artists have undergone Vulnerable Sector Screening.

Working out of diverse cultural traditions, MASC artists offer workshops, performances, artist-in-residence programs and professional development in music, dance, drama, literary, media and visual arts. MASC programs are delivered in English and French, throughout Eastern Ontario and Western Québec to students in Kindergarten to Grade 12, and to youths and adults in a variety of community settings (daycares, museums, NCC, festivals and seniors venues.)

MASC is known widely as a dynamic and energetic team of artists and staff who are deeply invested in the communities we serve. MASC's outreach and advocacy for arts education and creative experience is unparalleled in the region. MASC's work includes many annual events, scholarship programs for under-served communities, professional development opportunities for teachers, artists and staff, and new programs tailored specifically for seniors and street-involved youth. MASC's name is synonymous with excellence, innovation and professionalism.

In fact, with the exception of the major festivals and the National Arts Centre, MASC has the largest audiences of any arts organization in the city.
