Mission Statement

The National Performance Network (NPN) is a group of diverse cultural organizers, including artists, working to create meaningful partnerships and to provide leadership that enables the practice and public experience of the performing arts in the United States.

NPN serves artists, arts organizers, and a broad and diverse range of audiences and communities across the country through commissions, residencies, community cultural projects, the NPN Annual Meeting, and other artistic activities.

Description

Today, NPN has grown to a partnership of 55 art organizations, called Partners, in over 36 cities across the country. NPN connects Artists with communities around two simple ideas - to help artists make work in their own neighborhoods, and to cross geographic and cultural divides to increase the traffic of fresh, challenging artistic work.

NPN provides support for established and emerging artists in dance, music, theater, performance art, puppetry, and spoken word. It serves as the developmental rung on the ladder for emerging contemporary performing artists because it provides rare or first-time touring opportunities. NPN also plays a critical role for mid-career and established artists who continue to create new work and to tour on the network because it offers a wealth of opportunities at a time when support is diminishing. Equally important, NPN connects artists with progressive presenters, arts organizations, and communities across the country.
