throckmorton organizing principles


Our mission—to unite our community through the power of the arts—goes beyond providing diverse and engaging arts programming in the heart of our community.


  • Arts Advocacy—We take a leadership role in galvanizing the local arts sector for collective decision-making and action through the Community Arts Coalition.
  • Community Dialogue—We seek continuously to inform, engage and learn from our community regarding all aspects of our programming, planning and advocacy through our newsletter, website, surveys, planning workshops, and special events.
  • Access—We encourage participation by all members of our community through outreach, scholarships, low cost ticketing options, volunteer and internships opportunities and special needs accommodation.
  • Community Venue—We provide a beautiful, welcoming venue at discount rates for the special events of local nonprofit arts and service organizations.
