Welcome to the 32nd Season...


With the Northern Arts & Cultural Centre


Over the past 4 years, as the Executive and Artistic Director, I have had the pleasure of seeing the Northern Arts and Cultural Centre (NACC) growing as a cultural hub in the Northwest Territories.  As I move forward with my 5th season, it is an honor to celebrate the 32nd year of this performing arts centre with you as well as inaugurating our Canada’s 150th Anniversary Series. With a roaster full of the best established and emerging talent this country and beyond have to offer, we are dedicated to present dynamic productions for a diverse and modern audience. Being the only fully equipped venue in the NWT, the line-up of acts will be at the FRONT AND CENTRE of a season both socially and artistically compelling. This multidisciplinary platform enables us to have a place for reflection, a place we can return to, a place where we can foster a conversation between patrons and artists. We aim at offering a mix of genres and styles, if possible something completely unexpected. With shows from near and far, past and present, you will laugh and cry, be frightened and amazed. 

 Patrons, colleagues, Board Members, volunteers, partners and funders make it a huge part of the success. They are lending a wealth of knowledge and experience to the organization and it is in my opinion the key of the organization’s success.

We hope you will find the Season insightful, moving and artistically engaging. 

Wishing you a great and enjoyable Season,

Marie Coderre
Executive and Artistic Director
