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.

The MAF programming adheres faithfully to the three-fold principle of ‘fostering the development of local arts, showcasing outstanding performances from around the world and propagating the Chinese culture”. Since its inception, the MAF has been actively promoting local artistic creation and providing numerous performance opportunities for the local artistic community through a wide variety of large-scale performances and exhibitions. The MAF promotes the Chinese traditional repertoire as well, thereby exposing its brilliant qualities on the international stages of Macao.

The MAF also features organises a host of complementary activities such as workshops and discussions, in order to promote artistic education in the territory. In addition, the MAF offers regularly open rehearsals, allowing the public to have a sneak preview of the performances in store and a glimpse into the process behind its creation. These activities aim to better engage audiences, involving them face to face with the ‘beautiful arts’ in their city and in their lives!
