Mission & Background


Mayo Street Arts strives to strengthen its neighborhood and community by providing a haven for the arts that is vibrant, safe, and inspiring; and to engage area youths of diverse cultural communities in robust participation in the visual, performing, and literary arts.


Mayo Street Arts (MSA) was incorporated in 2010. Programs quickly grew to include visual and performing arts programs for the multicultural neighborhood of East Bayside.

MSA plays an important role in the neighborhood by providing a safe and vibrant center for after school and summer learning. Literacy and arts programs for children help students of need succeed and receive opportunities that they may not otherwise have.

In addition to learning programs, MSA is a vibrant arts venue, presenting music concerts, theater, dance, puppet theater, and other arts performances that enrich the lives of so many people of our city.

In 2013 MSA received a major grant to purchase our building. We have since put on a new roof and completed many facility improvements as we work towards our goal of providing a completely modern, flexible, accessible center of the arts.
