Mission & Vision

The mission of Carolina Performing Arts is to curate and present exceptional arts experiences that inspire and provoke the UNC community and beyond and celebrate the intrinsic value of the creative process.

We strive to nurture artistic innovation and the development of new works on and off campus; to challenge and inspire audiences with powerful and transformative performances; and to integrate the arts into the life of the University, embracing its mission of teaching, research, and public service.

Our vision is to be known by UNC, peer presenters, and the broader public for curating in-depth artistic engagements that elicit active participation by audiences and expand the role of artists on UNC’s campus. During the 2016-17 season, we continue to live out our vision through Arts@TheCore.
