The Newman Center inspires Denver audiences and artists through performances that create regional and global cultural connections.


Our vision is to be a cultural anchor for a thriving, dynamic, and diverse 21st century Denver.


Artistic vibrancy – we catalyze great art and support great artists. We engage audiences and communities so that we may build a more vibrant society and culture.

People first – we value the whole person and bring a human-centered approach to our team, students, patrons, performing artists, and collaborators to build a diverse, equitable, and inclusive space.

Community – we are dedicated to the public good and aspire to be a cultural anchor of Denver. We believe the performing arts can strengthen communities at the local, state, national, and international level.

Interdisciplinary – we believe that the performing arts are a critical part of the intellectual life of a university and highlight academic and societal connections in our work.
