Our Mission

Segerstrom Campus in the Evening


Segerstrom Center for the Arts believes in the power of performing arts to transform lives and that the shared experience and exploration of the arts will help unite Orange County, creating a more culturally connected and vital community.  We will help shape the Orange County of the future through meaningful collaborations with diverse communities, embracing creativity in all its forms and enabling a more inclusive, vibrant performing arts scene at The Center and across the region.

We will maintain the excellence of our core artistic and educational programs while demonstrating the entrepreneurial resolve to extend resources, know-how and creativity out into these communities we engage.  The Center will be transformed into a cultural center and dynamic town square deeply engrained in the fabric of our community, artistically ambitious, yet accessible to all, one that shines as the very model of the successful performing arts center of the future. We will show that together we thrive when we make the arts matter.
