Friends of NTC

Friends of NTC Want You!

Friends of NTC are community-minded individuals and organizations  who are an integral part of the advancement and success of the nonprofit NTC Foundation. Friends support everything happening in ARTS DISTRICT, from helping programs like Liberty School, refinishing floors in Dance Place, keeping the 26 historic former Navy buildings shipshape, and more.

ARTS DISTRICT Liberty Station is a destination filled with nearly 120 galleries, museums, artists, studios, makers, creators, and unique dining experiences, all bursting with life and culture. NTC Foundation began expertly renovating this historic property in 2000 and is currently dedicated to community-building and furthering ARTS DISTRICT’S success as it honors its Navy past while also building for the future.

Join the Friends of NTC annual membership to support our vibrant, unique, innovative, and inspiring ARTS DISTRICT.
