Our Mission

We believe that performing arts can engage, stimulate, inspire, challenge, educate, reflect, empower and nourish artists, audiences and communities.

We are committed to the cultural enrichment of Saint Paul’s ethnically and economically diverse East Side neighborhoods.

We will work as a catalyst and magnet for arts and culture by developing new programs and partnerships, which create opportunities for youth, adults and professionals to actively participate in drama, music, dance, cinema, multimedia and other arts and cultural activities.

We will strive to increase participation in the arts for all, through inspiring and accessible dramatic, musical, dance, cinematic and other arts and cultural performances at the Mounds Theatre facility and by offering facilities and programming support to artists and performers.
