About us

The Multicultural Artists Coalition (MAC-CAM) is a non-profit grassroots organization shaped by immigrant, refugee, Indigenous, Black, and POC artists. Through capacity-building workshops, art festivals, research, and advocacy, our programming targets systemic barriers so that our communities can achieve their goals to a better capacity (larger impact, audience, scale, and visibility).

Our Mandate

We believe that knowledge is the foundation for capacity. Thus, our programs aim to construct a long-term continuous process to empower our community by developing community assets, abilities, and capacities based on the principles of self-determination, self-management, and sustainability.
