NARPACA is the single largest presenter group of performing arts product in Queensland and the Northern Territory. NARPACA members are responsible for professionally managed venues within their communities that stretch from the Gold Coast in the South to Mount Isa in the West, Townsville and Cairns in the North to Darwin and Alice Springs in the Northern Territory.
NARPACA venues range in size, catchment and structure ranging from large metropolitan centres such as QPAC and The Arts Centre Gold Coast to small regional centres such as Boonah Cultural Centre and Capella Cultural Centre.
NARPACA venues range in age such as the Empire Theatre originally constructed in 1911, Cairns Civic Theatre and Townsville Civic Theatre constructed in the 1970’s to Redland Performing Arts Centre which officially opened in 2008.
Individually NARPACA members are primarily the main presenters and advocates of cultural product within their region. Collectively NARPACA members provide access to one of the largest professional touring circuits in Australia.
NARPACA’s objectives are;
Maintain and develop a diverse regional touring network
