The goal of the investigation is to understand how the cultural arts and educational programing at the MACC is managed, themed, designed, and implemented as well as how the programming is received by participants.
If you would like to take part in this study, you can take a survey about your experiences at the MACC here: MACC Research Survey
El objetivo de la investigación es comprender cómo se maneja, se diseña, se implementa y cómo se escogen los temas para la programación artística y educativa en el MACC, y cómo los participantes reciben la programación.
