Who We Are

We're a group of engaged individuals in Ottawa Canada who collaborate to bring people of all ages face-to-face to learn, laugh, grow, challenge, lift and share. The world needs more bridging than ever and so here we are, offering our part.  

Here's a little bit about the brains, body and spirit behind the MacKay Brainery!

Mira Culham

Founder and Lead Enthusiast

"I've lived in several countries with my family due to my husband's diplomatic career. Now I'm delighted to call Ottawa home. I enjoy nature, walking/hiking, bicycling, reading, painting and being with people. One of my gifts is bringing people together, face to face, in an atmosphere of learning and fun with no computers. The MacKay Brainery was born from this gift!"  


Alexandra Howard

Co-Enthusiast

"I've spent many years trekking around the world and have landed in beautiful Chelsea Quebec with my family after over two decades of living abroad. We chose to live in Chelsea because of its strong community roots, its connection to nature and its underlying creative spirit.  Living here offers a daily reminder of the importance of these core values and how we must each care enough to take action so we can preserve them, for us and for our children. I'm proud to be part of the MacKay Brainery and its great mission."
