Mundaring Arts Centre is situated in the heart of the creative hills community of Mundaring, only 40 minutes north east from the Perth CBD.
Formed in 1979 by a group of dedicated volunteers passionate about providing a focus for arts and culture in the Perth hills, MAC has remained true to its origins. MAC is a not for profit community arts organisation run by a volunteer Board, dedicated professional staff and a large group of volunteers (including voluntary committees consisting of experts in a variety of arts and culture fields). Currently a Director, Exhibition Administrator, Online Marketing Officer, Finance Administrator and volunteers deliver MAC’s programs. Curators, public program artists and additional staff are regularly employed on short-term contracts as required.
Over the years, the MAC staff, volunteers and artists have delivered a diverse range of creative arts experiences, engaging thousands of individuals of all interests and ages, annually.
MAC continues to strengthen its services, building on established connections, refining and broadening programming and engaging diverse audiences and artists from across the state, whilst providing a place where West Australian artists can demonstrate their arts practice and sell their work.

MAC celebrates the ingenuity of our members with an exhibition of works created from the discarded, the broken or the abandoned.
