About NMPA

The New Mexico Presenters Alliance is a coalition of performing arts presenters who gather two times a year to share information on programming opportunities and resources with the goal of organizing tours. Benefits of membership include invites to meetings, access to list serve, participation in block-booked tours and grant opportunities. Full membership is open to New Mexico-based nonprofit performing arts presenters. Dues are currently $100/year, billed in July.  Contact us if dues are financially challenging.
