MASh Call for Work!


Usually, as an annual event, Montserrat hosts the Media and Animation Showcase (MASh) at The Cabot theater at the end of the spring semesters. This event has a reputation for showcasing the time-based work our students, alumni, and other community members create in our super cool and beloved local theater. While the pandemic has stifled a lot of plans in the past couple of years, we’re now back up and running. We’re pleased to share that this year’s MASh will premiere on May 12th at The Cabot Theater, 286 Cabot St., Beverly! Doors will open at 6:30 pm with the show starting at 7 pm and going until around 9:30 pm.

Of course, to hold this event, we need work to showcase! If you are a current student of Montserrat College of Art or are an alumnus of the college, we are looking for your work. Please see the attached submission form and terms of service to know how you can get your work displayed in a beautiful theater amongst fellow members of our community. We are a team run by students, for students, so please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions, comments, or concerns. Faculty members spread the word throughout your classes! Encourage students to take initiative to submit their work to the showcase, for it’s a super neat opportunity.
