SeraphFest 2015 rocked Mater Dei's Memorial Hall on March 13th in Middletown, NJ. Gratitude to all those who joined together to make this show happen from the performers to the vendors to the student and parent volunteers. Thanks to Mater Dei teacher, Cindy Dwyer, for working with the MAI to take this idea off the ground and for being amazing to work with.
Good Luck to Mater Dei Prep High School! Hope to see you again next year for SeraphFest 2016!

Papa Ganache Open Mic
Thank you to Papa Ganache for lending their space for the Papa Ganache Open Mic Series and Poetry Workshop. And thanks to all the wonderful poets, artists and musicians we met along the one year journey of this series. At this time this series has closed. The MAI is working on another monthly series for the community. While this is underway and always continue to support other local open mics and events in the area. Check out the local events page to see what events MAI artists have coming up.
The MAI is comprised of dedicated local artists seeking to further the arts in our community, to encourage collaboration, creation and the fulfillment of the creative goals.
MAI shows are a collaborative effort between the MAI, the artists and the community. We encourage all those who want to join to do so. Whether you are a first time performer or have played a 100 shows, we have a place for you at the MAI.
Are you a local creative interested in getting involved in one of our future shows? If so, please message the MAI! Send a brief bio of yourself along with links and samples of your work to firstname.lastname@example.org
Check out the MAI facebook page and community forum page to stay connected.
Do you attend local events? Do you have opinions on them? Have you written a review of a NJ/ NY author? The MAI is looking for your thoughts on the NJ scene. If you are interested in writing a review of a book, recent cd release, poetry reading, concert or art show contact the MAI.
