Our mission is to provide opportunities for kids to develop their artistic talent and to use the arts to empower kids and families of all cultural and economic backgrounds to use their strengths to serve their community.
Northern Expressions Arts Collective (NEAC) is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to improving our communities using the arts as a primary teaching platform. NEAC promotes family friendly entertainment, artist development, and community service projects. It is our desire for every community to have a thriving arts program to feed local community involvement while we train up the next generation of leaders.
Our goal is to collaborate with the families in the communities of Duluth/Superior and together work to make our city an even better place to live. We do not believe that any one person has the answers, but by working and serving together, we can use our strengths and skills to make a difference.
We seek to empower kids of all ages and cultural and economic backgrounds to be good citizens of their neighborhood and to support their families through encouraging their strengths and equipping them with the tools they need to develop their full potential.
So many people are under the assumption that access to the arts is only available to those who can afford it. We believe that art is available all around us, and we work diligently to provide opportunities for everyone to develop their own talent and produce quality work.
We believe that art can be used to teach and inspire in all areas. We seek to find dynamic ways in which to inspire kids and families to think "outside the box" and incorporate art into their everyday lives.
