The River Rea (pronounced "ray") passing the Midlands Art Centre (a.k.a. “The MAC”). The Rea, upon which Birmingham was founded in the C7th by the Beorma tribe, rises in Waseley Hills Country Park, south-west of Birmingham, close to Junction 4 of the M5 Motorway and it merges with the River Tame near Gravelly Hill Interchange 14 miles (23 kms) from its source, with its waters eventually reaching the North Sea via the River Trent. The MAC was founded in 1962 as the Midlands Arts Centre for Young People, this enterprise project received strong support from Birmingham City Council, which provided the 8.6 acre site on the northern boundary of Cannon Hill Park. Although many of the buildings, including the art studios and two small theatres were completed by the mid-1960s the centre has been greatly extended and upgraded since then.
