The Performing Arts Centre Multimedia operates since 1998 as an independent, non - governmental, non-profit organisation in the field of culture, education and social affairs in the Republic of Macedonia as well as in the Balkan region and wider.
The main role of the PAC Multimedia is to inform, create and promote co-operation in the region and broader, as well as to stimulate a dialogue throughout the region.
We, people who create PAC Multimedia, are visionaries; we promote new ideas and serve as an encouragement to the Macedonian youngsters and the whole population in general, to fit in and to act in accordance with the times of change in which we live in.
The global strategic policy of PAC Multimedia is to be a creative base where the energy of the young generation and the population on the whole will focus on the moving force to create and develop new standards in the cultural living, raising the level of consciousness through education, informing, promotion and production.
PAC Multimedia is a space for know-how transfer, an initiating force in creating and developing new standards of living in a wider cultural and social context, and with their implementation, actively takes part in the integrating processes of the Republic of Macedonia, getting closer to the positive models of civil societies.
During our existence we have successfully organised more than 100 workshops, summer schools, open public debates, festivals, concerts, short films, presentations, exchange programmes, where more than 20.000 participants from Macedonia and from the region took part.
We are a Centre with greater number of collaborators and co-workers, developing the corporation with volunteers. We co-operate with many institutions and independent groups and we are open for all kind of initiatives and ideas that come from outside, but are tuned in with our strategy.
