Tune into the Official Opening Ceremony of MACFEST 2018. Solomon Islands hosted the first Melanesian Arts Festival in 1998 and again commencing on the second leg of the festival’s journey through Melanesia in 2018. The host believes that it is time to move beyond just celebrating and start embarking on a more prolific approach to the development of art and culture in Melanesia. The theme of the 6th MACFEST “Past Recollections; Future Connections”, reinforces the significance of this festival as a time to reminisce on our history and cultures, whilst at the same time connecting ourselves as one people in diversity for a brighter connected future. The true spirit of this festival is Sharing in Unity, whereby through our recollections we are then connected together as we journey forth into the future.
