Welcome to the home page for McDowell Arts Council Association (you can also just call us MACA).
What is an Arts Council?
An arts council is a government or private non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the arts. In North Carolina, there are more than 75 local arts councils which support the 100 counties.
What is MACA?
MACA was founded in 1972 as an independent non-profit organization and we later became the designated local partner of the NC Arts Council to better serve McDowell County through statewide initiatives, educational opportunities, grants, and other arts resources.
MACA hosts, sponsors, and produces arts opportunities to promote growth in the educational, economic, community, cultural, visual and performance art sectors throughout McDowell County.
