The Boards of Directors of
New England Presenters
Arts Presenters of Northern New England
are pleased to announce:
Our members have offered a unanimous YES! vote to unite our organizations into one strong, diverse consortium, focused on supporting arts presenters throughout New England.
Thank you to all consortia members who voted and who expressed support for this exciting step forward!
What does this merger mean for members and for the organization?
Member participation and support is necessary to ensure that we can realize the goal of a strengthened, revitalized space to learn, grow, and support one another and the performing arts presenting needs of the region.
Founded in 1981, New England Presenters (NEP) is a non-profit, regional consortium of over 80 organizations consisting of performing arts presenters from public and private colleges and universities, preparatory schools, municipal arts agencies and community based organizations of all sizes.
NEP serves its membership by facilitating block booking of tours by performing artists that reduce fees to individual presenters; commissioning new works in dance, music and mixed art forms that tour the New England region; supporting special projects by artists, sometimes in collaboration with other regional presenting groups and, providing professional development opportunities for presenters to exchange management and artistic ideas.
NEP maintains liaison with the Association of Performing Arts Presenters (APAP), the National Association of Performing Arts Managers and Agents (NAPAMA), the New England Foundation for the Arts (NEFA), the Arts Presenters of Northern New England (APNNE), and the six state arts agencies.
