The Company Formerly Known as Peter Augustus
Welcome to the Northern Expressions Arts Collective, the company formerly known as Peter
Augustus - ready to take northern Minnesota by storm, educate and develop new artists, and
serve the surrounding communities. Join us!
After a five-year hiatus, it became apparent that 2011 was the time to resurrect the old
company - this time with a vision to move back to Minnesota and combine the arts with
community service, only this time to Duluth and greater northeastern Minnesota. Like the
mythical phoenix, the company has risen from the ashes, only bigger and better than before!
While we and the family we had become as PATG had a blast together, the old saying, "all
good things must come to an end" proved true. Due to out-of-state employment
opportunities, our board of directors disbanded. Our students graduated. We all parted
amicably, if not tearfully, vowing that PATG would live to perform again.
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.
