Midlands Arts Centre (mac) workers campaign against mass job losses

26-03-2008 16:11

The Midlands Arts Centre (mac), established in 1962, is the most visited arts centre in the Midlands with over 500,000 visitors a year. Mac is a non-profit arts centre situated in Cannon Hill Park, Edgbaston, Birmingham. It is due to close for around 18 months for a £13.5 million refurbishment in April 2008. Mac has had to fundraise money for what it terms is the 'refurbishment of our home'. As you negotiate your way through the exhibition spaces and the bar, donation bins catch your eye and urge "If you love mac as much as we love you, please help by supporting our Appeal". The role of mac's loyal and hard working staff, however, doesn't appear to feature in management's plans for a "bigger and better mac".
