Situated in the heart of Midland, Midland Junction Arts Centre (MJAC) is a vibrant visual and performing arts facility managed by Mundaring Arts Centre Inc. with the support of the City of Swan.
Always acting as a convergent point for community education, the Midland Junction Arts Centre building was first opened as a small school in 1895. The space was then expanded to provide primary, secondary and even tertiary education when the technical college opened in 1904. In the time since, MJAC has been known as Kalla Yeedip Arts in the 1990's and Midland Opera Studio (2002 - 2008), before reopening under Mundaring Arts Centre Inc. Management in 2017.
Following an active period of rejuvenation, MJAC has been transformed: now delivering a diverse arts education and cultural program to stimulate increased imagination, creativity, skills and knowledge. A curated exhibition program is complemented by regular workshops for all ages, an artist in residence program and a range of cultural events.
This historical venue is available for community hire and offers three galleries, a 142-seat theatre, ceramics, dance and print studios, textiles and drawing rooms, classrooms, a function room as well as a range of workspaces for artists, workshops and meetings.
