About the
National Arts Centre

The National Arts Centre (NAC) is Canada’s bilingual, multi-disciplinary home for the performing arts. The NAC presents, creates, produces, and co-produces performing arts programming in various streams—the NAC Orchestra, Dance, English Theatre, French Theatre, Indigenous Theatre, and Popular Music and Variety—and nurtures the next generation of audiences and artists from across Canada.

The NAC is located in the National Capital Region on the unceded territory of the Algonquin Anishinabeg Nation.

The New NAC

From the quiet calm of the morning until the electric excitement of the night, the new NAC welcomes Canadians, pulses with life, and spreads the joy of the arts.
