You can be part of ensuring that artists' creative works will be seen by audiences and youth in our community for years to come.

In this decade, leading up to Northrop’s 100-year anniversary in 2029, the Northrop Centennial Commissions project helps create new dance works to ensure that there will be amazing performances far into the future.

With your support, Northrop’s Centennial Commissions program provides:

  • The creation and presentation of exquisite new works
  • Opportunities for students, youth, and communities to experience transformative arts
  • Connections through art that will be shared for generations
  • Arts programming for youth arts and education programs

A deeper understanding and insight into art, self-expression, and communication through discussions with artists, inspiring the community and young people.
