On the Boards invests in leading contemporary performing artists near and far, and connects them to a diverse range of communities interested in forward-thinking art and ideas.

"We believe if we are successful in our work that we can grow our field, enrich peoples' lives, and contribute to civic and global dialogues.

We value:

  • artistic risks while being fiscally responsible;
  • leadership in our field and the multiple communities we serve to strategically advance the role contemporary artists play in society;
  • racial and social equity to ensure our organization includes multiple viewpoints;
  • provocative art as a vehicle to connect people of diverse backgrounds and perspectives;
  • our local creative community as we engage with international artists and peers."
