Welcome to the mini-site for the National Performance Network’s 25th Anniversary Annual Meeting in Dallas, TX.

If you are browsing this site, it means that you have been invited to "live large & think big" with your fellow NPN and VAN Partners, Artists and Colleagues as we honor all the reasons we made it to our silver celebration. South Dallas Cultural Center, NPN Partner and Meeting Host, has been cooking up an amazing event, filled with celebrations, creativity and Dallas community.

The Annual Meeting is a forum for networking and sharing strategies with each other, for advancing our professional and field development and for conversations that span generations and perspectives. We hope you re-visit old and make new relationships, whet your creative appetites, and walk away from the Meeting with the tools, the inspiration and connections to support your work when you return to your communities.

Official Meeting activities kick off on Thursday, December 9 and continue through the weekend until late Sunday night. Plan to arrive in time for "Discovering Dallas! A Guide to the NPN/VAN Annual Meeting" on Thursday at 4:00pm, when you’ll learn everything you wanted to know about the Meeting (but were afraid to ask), and then enjoy seeing old friends and making new ones at the Opening Reception (both at the hotel).
