Spotlight Artist NPN Annual Meeting

“Live & On Stage” Performance Showcases

Q-Roc and The bull-jean stories multimedia adaptation were selected to spotlight at the National Performance Network Annual Meeting in Tampa, Florida.

The National Performance Network (NPN) is a national organization supporting artists in the creation and touring of contemporary performing and visual arts

NPN is about community engagement, touring, creating, sharing ideas and knowledge. NPN is about representing all artists who create something new and supporting the presenters who take the risk in showcasing it.

The National Performance Network (NPN) has brought innovative performing artists to all corners of the United States for more than 25 years.  Begun in 1985 by David White at Dance Theatre Workshop in New York, NPN was founded to address the issues of artistic isolation and the economic constraints of moving  art around the country and the sharing of artistic and community voices.  From a beginning of 14 organizations as “primary sponsors,” the network now numbers 61NPN Partners.
