Our Idea

Our idea

Networking evenings

Relaxed meet ups with small showcase performances and casual atmosphere. Come and mingle with fellow Creative Maidstonians! Held bi-monthly at Studio 6 (MEPA ) Maidstone.

Events and activities

Our initial idea was simple: Creative events, activities and resources. For creatives, by creatives. We have some wonderful venues already hosting our meet and draw, networking and live jam mash up nights.

News & Reviews

We believe in spreading the word and opening doors for each other. Get started with a user account for this site and post news about your upcoming gigs or exhibitions or share a review of a recent event.

Creative Connections

We are a friendly bunch with no hierarchy hoping to make lasting connections between different creatives, practices and stakeholders. We welcome all creatives - all you need is a Maidstone connection.

Creative Maidstone

We believe Maidstone has a great deal to offer for Creatives of all disciplines and experience levels, whether you are an Artist, Musician, Performer, Venue Owner or have any other vested interest in the growing the art scene in Maidstone, our aim is to work together to ignite a sense of community and to utilise these assets to their greatest effect.




In collaboration with Harmony Maidstone, these MASH UP events are live jam nights where the only rule is that you can't play or perform anything that is not original! Come and get experimental, draw along and dance to the live jam!

Quick Draw

Come and meet up and draw while enjoying a pint or a coffee at one of our lovely local pubs. No prior experience necessary, just bring a sketchbook and pencils!


Our latest offering is the MAG-ZINE. We have setup a blog here on this site to enable you to share your latest gigs news, upcoming albums, exhibitions, venue opening or looking for adverts for band members, equipment and art tools. The best part is we will target advertise the blog to other local local creatives, Maidstone businesses and venues. I's easy to submit an article, register and join the discussion, click the image to find out more...

Creative Minds Networking Events

With short showcase performances, games and short talks and announcements for relevant events and exhibitions in the Maidstone area.

About Us

About Us

We are Maidstone Arts Group, MAG. Formed in early 2022 by a group of likeminded individuals who felt the time was right to create a new social element to Maidstone's creative offering, to make a dedicated effort to bring as many of the artists, musicians, writers, groups and creative business owners together in one place as we could.  Be that in person or online, we are trying to nurture our creative culture in Maidstone, and to help make it an even more encouraging and welcoming place to make your mark.

We are an informal, non hierarchical group of artists, musicians, event planners, promoters, writers, creative business owners, radio DJs and presenters, who work together to make ways to get creatives together and support each other's work and talents.

We meet about two evenings a month at various venues around town. It's always a friendly and lively discussion, if you'd like to get more involved with MAG planning and ideas please get in touch - we are always excited to meet new creatives with a passion for our creative community.




New album out soon? Need a new bassist? Exhibition next month? Buzzing over the work of a new artist in the area? Sick of algorithms showing your events the day after they happened? Us too.
