Our Philosophy

Having grown into a national model for presenting networks, NCPC functions as a noncompetitive alliance of colleagues who trust, support and uplift each other, knowing that building one’s own audience for the performing arts builds our state’s audience for the arts.

NCPC engages its membership in an open sharing of vision, advice, resources, opportunities, successes, difficulties, creativity and progress. And in so doing, we strengthen relationships between artists and audiences across our great state.

It is NCPC’s shared belief that the arts have both the power and the responsibility to educate, entertain, enlighten, engage, provoke, challenge, motivate, liberate, enlarge and inspire the human spirit. The sharing of the arts experience creates an opportunity for dialogue and question, resolution and response. Through active participation, each of us shapes the record of what matters. We remind you that your voice counts.
