1. The support of performance art created through research, impacting the cultural identity of Charlotte.
2. Audiences engaging in the practice of viewing performance, activating deeper cultural understanding and cultivating awareness when discussing work as an audience member. We value the audience as integral to the feedback process to foster the relevancy and strength of the work.
3. Space for performing artists to create, and for audiences and artists to intersect and engage in discourse surrounding the role of performance in contemporary culture and society.
