Our Vision

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.

 Our Mission

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.

Our Values

  • professional and transparent management

  • racial and social equity, and accountability

  • leadership in our field and the multiple communities we serve to strategically advance the role contemporary artists play in society

  • artistic risks while being fiscally responsible

  • provocative art as a vehicle to connect people of diverse backgrounds and perspectives

  • our regional creative community as we engage with international artists and peers
