We hope you enjoy looking through what we do, and ways in which you can get involved.

So what’s new! We have a lot of exciting things planned for this year and beyond, and we are really excited about them. MACA has been in existence for over 35 years and as a Charity Incorporated since 2018, which means that people can apply to be trustees instead of being voted on, we believe this makes it more accessible for those who are interested in our work to get involved.

This year we are working with a dance organisation called USDD to produce a Hip Hopera to tell the story of the Windrush era. This project has been funded by Theatre 31 and we will be holding auditions for young people throughout February and March. If you can sing, dance, do spoken word, act, are interested in stage production, then get in touch via the get in touch link on this site.

The chairperson of MACA is a regular guest on the Dominic King Show, on BBC Radio Kent. They are always keen to hear from other people in Kent and Medway with regards to the arts and life in Kent, if you would like to get involved, get in touch to find out more.

MACA will be launching a number of specialist services later on this year, working with experts in the field of diversity, the arts, community engagement and culture to name a few. Over the years we are often asked to go into schools, colleges, universities and other organisations to provide consultancy, talks, work with young people on issues related to diversity, racism, policing, policy, cultural education. We will be expanding our range of services so we can engage more effectively.

If you would like to find out more then get in touch with us. We are also looking for volunteers to contribute to this blog and to help revise our Black History website , fancy yourself as a roving reporter or a history detective !! then contact us for more information.

So this is us for now, new website, new year, new opportunities! Thank you for taking the time to explore our website, we look forward to meeting you very soon!
