We are a production and development company building infrastructure, relationships and platforms to support sustainable creativity in cities.
MAIA run artist-led interventions, exploring the relationship between creative professionals, culture, place, economics and society.
Since our inception in 2013, we have evolved a fair bit. We started with business clubs and curating platforms for artists. On to producing, commissioning and designing communications strategies for creative industry organisations. And while our mission has always been to support a sustainable creative ecosystem, our work required us to step back and explore the deeper infrastructure requirements for healthy, creative towns and cities.
At present, through projects, research and client work, MAIA are committed to building necessary infrastructures to support sustainable creativity in cities. Current work looks at the role of artists in (re)developing and future-proofing cities and spaces, the impact of creative practice on society, the economics of the creative industries and how artists live/work.
