This cutting-edge venue is a space where art and innovation come together.

The Multi-Arts Pavilion, mima (MAP mima) is the newest addition to the exciting Lake Arts Precinct, offering a high-tech creative canvas for contemporary art and cementing Lake Macquarie’s place as a leading creative city.

The ‘mima’ part of the name comes from an Awabakal word meaning ‘cause to stay’ – and it couldn’t be more appropriate for this venue, which sits on a lovely patch of green at Speers Point Park on the shores of the stunning body of water that is Lake Macquarie.

Designed by University of Newcastle undergraduate architecture student Samantha Bailey, the building features a central gallery (The Cube) for exhibitions and large-scale multi-media experiences, as well as a series of other spaces, both indoors and out.

Expect contemporary artworks that push boundaries, in a setting that’s both architecturally striking but also immersed in its natural surroundings.

Actively welcomes people with access needs.
