National Arts Centre Foundation

Arts & Culture


The NAC Foundation raises funds to support the National Arts Centre’s work in performance, creation and learning across Canada. Enriching the lives of Canadians through the performing arts and championing our country’s artists, students, and educators.  

The National Arts Centre (NAC) is Canada’s bilingual, multi-disciplinary home for the performing arts. The NAC presents, creates, produces, and co-produces performing arts programming in various streams—the NAC Orchestra, Dance, English Theatre, French Theatre, Indigenous Theatre, and Popular Music and Variety—and nurtures the next generation of audiences and artists from across Canada. 

The NAC is located in the National Capital Region on the unceded territory of the Anishinabe Algonquin Nation.
