MAST’s vision is to be nationally recognised in providing Inspiring Experiences.
It is our mission to:
- Preserve and maintain MAST for the community and provide a diverse programme of quality arts experiences
- Be valuable to the community and local cultural offer as a creative hub and centre of excellence for culture in Southampton
- Be community led with engagement and consultation at its heart
MAST is a multi-art form cultural hub presenting and producing theatre, dance, musicals, music, comedy, circus, cabaret, spoken word, visual arts and family shows.
We are community-led, with engagement and consultation at the heart of everything we do.
We work with the best touring companies and local artists to present a diverse, vibrant, high-quality artistic programme, alongside our own MAST productions and co-productions.
Our Community and outreach programme - Engage - works throughout the community giving opportunities to take part and developing both future audiences and future theatre makers. This work leads into our Artist Development programme.
Our Creative hub has 7 resident companies from different art forms whom we work with closely to create exceptional cultural opportunities for the region.
