The Macao Arts Festival (MAF) is an annual event held in Macao during the month of May, which consistently enriches the cultural and artistic life of residents as well as visitors. Organised by the Cultural Affairs Bureau of the Macao S.A.R. Government, this year under the slogan ‘Enjoy Life through Art’, the MAF actively promotes the arts and artistic education, in an effort to encourage residents to engage in artistic activities and welcome the arts into their daily lives...

 

  • To enhance the development of local arts the Macao SAR Cultural Affairs Bureau, organiser of the Macao Arts Festival, is now inviting the submission of proposals for locally designed performances from all arts organisations registered in Macao. The deadline for submission of proposals is 30th September, 2011, and the selected performances will be staged in the 23rd Macao Arts Festival, to be held in May of next year.
  • The art exhibition A Glimpse of French Contemporary Painting is a major event within the 22nd Macao Arts Festival and part of Le French May 2011. Organised by Tap Seac Gallery under the auspices of the Cultural Affairs Bureau, the show opens to the public at 5pm on Saturday, 28th May in Tap Seac Gallery.
  • 100 programmes, 90% full, strong local presence and a head-turning performance on the Ruins of St. Paul's

  • The recent audiovisual performance at Macao’s most famous architectural landmark is now a red hot topic all over town. The “Encounters” Audiovisual Mapping of St. Paul’s Ruins, a highlighted programme in the 22nd Macao Arts Festival, gave its last performance this past Sunday, and, defying the heavy rain, an immense, enthusiastic crowd gathered for their last chance to witness this beautiful show. By the end of the show’s ten-day run average audience size had soared to more than four thousand people, greatly exceeding the organiser’s expectations. Footage of the performance has gone “viral” on the internet, receiving a very positive response from the online community. With these factors in mind, the Cultural Affairs Bureau has proposed offering a second run of “Encounters” Audiovisual Mapping of St. Paul’s Ruins in August of this year, to answer the overwhelming demand from citizens and tourists. Before a final decision is made, an open forum will be established to receive feedback on this proposal from the local artistic community and the public at large.
  • The Cultural Affairs Bureau would like to inform our esteemed public that, due to the current inclement weather conditions, the nightly performances of “Encounters: St. Paul’s Ruins Audiovisual Mapping”, featured in the 22nd Macao Arts Festival, scheduled for 8pm and 9pm on the 13th through the 22nd of May, outdoors at the Ruins of St. Paul's, will be cancelled today (16 May). We apologise for the inconvenience.
