Welcome, and thanks for your interest in the MAC program! Military Arts Connection (MAC) is a local resource that provides free artistic and creative Experiences for military community members living in the Pikes Peak region (El Paso or Teller counties). The program is available to active duty service members from all branches, veterans of all generations, and any dependents of local military families. Overview of the MAC program.

The original MAC program process was specifically designed for referrals to come through local Military & Veteran Service Organizations that have completed a special training. That has changed. Now, individuals can sign-up directly for a MAC Experience. That’s right, you do not need a referral to order an Experience. 

We still honor and respect our relationship with our trusted partners in this program. There are amazing community resources available, please  Military & Veteran Services Organizations 

To view the catalog and order an Experience .

Once your order has been placed, you’ll receive an automated email notification confirming your upcoming MAC Experience. Be sure to save this email, as you will need it later. The Artist Facilitator who will be providing your Experience will then have 48 hours to contact you directly by phone or email to coordinate all of the logistics and details for your upcoming Experience. Please respond to your Artist Facilitator as quickly as possible. If you have to cancel your Experience for any reason, please let your Artist Facilitator know!

Unless otherwise instructed, please do not bring any unexpected guests with you to the Experience. If you’d like to have a friend or family member join you as a participant in the Experience, then you’ll need to ask your artist facilitator (in advance) to make an accommodation for that friend or family member to have the same Experience. Again, it’s up to each artist facilitator to determine how many guests are welcome in each Experience.

After your Experience is over, you’ll be asked to complete a brief online evaluation survey. Your feedback will help us to maintain the quality of our Experiences, and to continually improve the overall operation of the MAC program. The link for your unique Post-Experience Evaluation Survey will be found at the bottom of your original order notification email. We would really appreciate your feedback and suggestions!

If you have any questions, please email
