The Northern Arts and Cultural Centre (NACC)
The Northern Arts and Cultural Centre (NACC) is a 301 - seat theatre facility located in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Canada. It was built with the help of the publisher of the Globe & Mail newspaper whose efforts raised funds from varied sources across Canada. The resulting Cultural Centre is the only fully-equipped live performance theatre in the Northwest Territories.
The Northern Arts and Cultural Centre Society exists as a non-profit charitable organization incorporated in February 1981. It operates under the direction of a volunteer Board of Directors and is administered by four full-time staff and supported by valued funders, sponsors, community interests, partner organizations, society members and a large body of community volunteers.
For over 30 years, NACC has been a venue and supporting agency for northern, national and international artists. The Centre operates a variety of programs in all regions of the Northwest Territories on an ongoing basis. From educational workshops to performing artist mentorships, the Northern Arts and Cultural Centre is a vital part of the cultural community of the NWT.
The mandate of NACC is to encourage the development of the performing arts from all cultural traditions and to provide a venue in the Northwest Territories for community and professionally produced performances.
