National Arts Centre releases 2008-2013 Strategic Plan

Ottawa (Canada) ĺ─ý The National Arts Centre (NAC) today released its new Strategic Plan which sets out the vision that will guide it over the next five years. The Plan, called ĺ─˙Performing for Canadiansĺ─¨, will help the NAC fulfill its role as a national centre for performance, creation and learning.

The Plan focuses on five clear goals: artistic excellence and innovation; enhancing the NACĺ─˘s national role; expanding its arts education activities; significantly increasing earned revenue; and developing a more customer-oriented internal culture.

ĺ─˙The NAC has a broad mandate, with many audiences to reach successfully,ĺ─¨ said Julia Foster, Chair of the National Arts Centre's Board of Trustees. ĺ─˛Performing for Canadiansĺ─˘ provides us with a clear road map. We are proud of the work that has gone into the development of this plan, reflecting the voices of Canadians from all parts of the country.ĺ─¨

The Strategic Plan is the result of extensive consultations over the last year with hundreds of artists, arts organizations, arts educators and public funders in communities all across Canada.

ĺ─˙This dialogue with these stakeholders provided the NAC with tremendously useful feedback, and helped to shape our strategic plan,ĺ─¨ said Peter Herrndorf, President and CEO of the National Arts Centre in Ottawa. ĺ─˙While weĺ─˘ve made a lot of progress over the past few years, the NAC still has a lot more work to do to achieve our dream of becoming a truly national performing arts organization.ĺ─¨
