About Us

 Who We Are

The Mississauga Arts Council is a 33 year-old not-for-profit organization that encases the collaborations of 217 arts organizations and 38,000 individual artists under one common umbrella.  MAC acts as a catalyst to inspire, engage and connect opportunities within the community to encourage multi-disciplinary artists and facilitate networking in the arts scene across diverse cultures.

We were established in 1981 by City Resolution, and a non-profit registered charity governed by a Board of Directors.

We aim to create a Mississauga that is a vibrant, creative, cultural community where arts and culture thrive.

 Join us and create a Legacy of Art! 

Strategic Plan 2013-2015

Mississauga Arts Council: Creating Tomorrow

In 2012, MAC set out to examine our place in the community and determine a future path that would ensure MAC’s relevancy to its members, the arts community and the City in the years ahead in response to our changing community.

The result was our Strategic Plan which you can read here: Mississauga Arts Council: Creating Tomorrow
