The Hult Center for the performing arts is a beacon for arts and culture providing exceptional experiences to our communities. Our mission is to enrich the cultural life of our region and we are indeed a regional Center, not only serving our communities in the Eugene metro-area, but communities from seven counties. For nearly 40 years, the Hult Center has been the pride of Eugene serving as the home for performing arts and providing some of the regions fondest personal memories.  From family milestones to that unforgettable moment of seeing a performance that has such lasting impact, the Hult Center is an incredibly special place.

The Center has its own presenting series, curating approximately 35 performances a year. And, we're growing! We are increasing our programming and services to enhance our engagement and collaboration with our communities, provide equity and access and steward the Center into the future. We're looking for professionals who are passionate about performing arts and ready to make an impact as a champion in our community.
