Though the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center (DPAC) is already committed to providing a state-of-the-art experience to a wide variety of audiences, expanding the Center’s digital presence will widen the scope of its audience still further. With robust funding and a visionary mindset, DPAC can fulfill its essential commitments while maintaining dynamic engagement with campus and the community. With greater digital accessibility, the Center can engage with audiences both near and far, opening up a door for people who may not otherwise have access to the resources at DPAC yet desire a closer connection.
Priorities for the Center include investments in ticketing services, web and mobile technologies, and streaming services. The successful funding of these initiatives will enable DPAC leadership to shift its focus from current operational needs to a broader vision for the Center, which includes raising the profile of the arts both locally and internationally and expanding current community engagement programming to a more clearly defined arts education program.
