Join us as we embark on an unprecedented opportunity for San Diego to create ARTS DISTRICT Liberty Station, a significant new flagship destination for arts and culture at the former Naval Training Center San Diego in Point Loma’s Liberty Station. Rarely at this stage of a city’s growth do we have an opportunity to create a significant legacy for the community. San Diego has not had such an opportunity since the 1915 Panama–California Exposition in Balboa Park.
NTC Foundation was established in 2000 by the City of San Diego as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit to enrich the lives of San Diegans by renovating this signature community asset and creating, facilitating, and operating ARTS DISTRICT as a 80-acre creative district. Visitors experience the arts, culture, creativity, and cuisine that are the hallmarks of the San Diego region and enjoy innovative experiences in a historic setting at Liberty Station that inspire lives for generations to come.
Thanks to community and donor support, NTC Foundation is working to advance ARTS DISTRICT to be (1) a center for arts, culture, and creativity that offers innovative experiences to both residents and visitors, (2) a creative hub for San Diego’s nonprofits and artists, (3) a dynamic destination for children and families, and (4) a historical showcase that honors the city’s Navy heritage.
