Bakelit Multi Art Centre

Budapest, Hungary

Bakelit Multi Art Center is a cultural institute in the industrial area of Budapest. Originally used in the early 1900’s for manufacturing war products, the building became a spinning factory employing many Cuban women as textile workers after the Second World War. The industrial area became a multi-art centre for the innovative and creative aspects of performing arts and fine arts in 1999.

Bakelit M.A.C aims to build a common future for artists by accommodating them with diverse artistic spaces such as recording studios, rehearsal halls, performance halls and stage, exhibition spaces and event rooms. The centre gives artists the opportunity to learn, create and perform in an environment that aids creative thinking through the arts. This allows artists to develop personally and artistically in order to give high-quality performance to various audiences. In addition to the aforementioned possibilities, an Artist In Residency programme was initiated in 2013.

The centre is also home to a hostel in order to assist all guests and artists present for a journey of arts and culture. Factory Hostel Budapest aims to generate friendships and deep professional relations while hosting guests who are in learning periods, study camps and other rehearsals. Bakelit M.A.C. offers numerous services for participating and collaborating for the development of fine and performing arts through the usage of multifunctional halls available at the centre.

Bakelit M.A.C. inspires artists to develop their artistic talents from an educational level to achieve professional success. Moreover, we run an international internship programme for AIESEC students who would like to have insight into cultural management, marketing, design, photography or video works.
