The 2015 PAC MAC Festival needs your help! In 2014 it was financed in part by a $25,000 Suffolk County Destination Downtown Grant. Because of changes to the criteria of the grant PAC was not eligible to apply in 2015.
This years festival will take place from October 2- 11 in downtown Patchogue
In 2014 The Patchogue Arts Council mounted their first ever PAC MAC Festival(Music Arts Cinema). Conceived as a way to unite and showcase the various artistic venues, movements, artists, and musicians in the Village of Patchogue, this enormous undertaking involved many collaborations and could not have been pulled off without support from the local community.
The Patchogue Arts Council is a non-profit 501 (C) (3) corporation and is run by a fantastic team of volunteers. An undertaking such as PAC MAC takes much planning, coordination, pure sweat-equity and most of all cool hard cash! We need your help! Please consider making a donation now!
This year’s PAC MAC will be similar to that of 2014 and again we will collaborate with the The Patchogue Theater for the Performing Arts, the artist community atArtspace Patchogue Lofts, Plaza Cinema and Media Arts Center and others.
This year’s theme, “Pairings”, will focus on the juxtaposition of contrasting or similar forms and media in pursuit of deeper meaning.
