MAI has long been committed to making connections between artists, audiences, and local communities. Initiated in 2009, Public+ is a dynamic series of activities offered in tandem with MAI’s regular-season exhibitions and performances – an attempt to raise questions, scratch at surfaces, and an opportunity to share, interact, and debate. Programming varies from year to year and is axed on learning, accessibility, and exchange. Activities include hands-on workshops, conferences, conversations, post show discussions with invited facilitators, guided tours of exhibitions, and special public events.

Artists and cultural workers from all disciplines are invited to come and meet representatives from the Accès culture network during this convivial 5 à 7 event. Every year the Accès culture network presents more than 2000 performances and 150 exhibitions, free of charge or at low cost, that showcase music, dance, theatre, circus arts, cinema and visual arts in the city's neighbourhoods.
