In June 2019, Seth Soloway, Director of the Performing Arts Center, Purchase College, announced his vision for a season that would reinvent The PAC as a living room for the entire community. “What happens in a living room? Shared experience and critical conversation. At The Performing Arts Center we provide experiences that inspire, engage, spark conversations, and make connections; in so doing, we will enhance our reputation as a welcoming community hub for an increasingly diverse audience base.” This notion still rings true today, as The PAC expands its virtual offerings and develops innovative ways to deliver programming to you at home, in your actual living room.
Keeping true to our mission to “inspire, engage, and spark critical conversations,” these new offerings will include a range of live, recorded, and curated events, education, and entertainment. It is still very much a work-in-progress, so check back often and see where we take it! (Click on each headline to learn more)
