The Arts Transform Lives

TPAC is passionate about the enduring ability of the performing arts to foster a shared understanding among people of different life experiences. By engaging with the arts, we appreciate what moves and motivates each other to incite feelings of inspiration, awe, and human connection. TPAC is for everyone, and we believe in the power of the arts, education, and community to transform lives. We invite you to support our fighting spirit to help further our nonprofit mission as follows:
