Tpac entered into an agreement with the state of Tennessee & the Tennessee Performing Arts foundation in 1978. The initial agreement established tpac principally for the purpose of presenting quality Arts entertainment & education to Tennessee residents through the operation of the Tennessee Performing Arts Center. Tpac has administrative control over the operations and functions of the four theaters located in two buildings in downtown nashville. In addition to its role with the state of Tennessee, tpac operates several program initiatives including six Arts education programs, public offerings such as a broadway series, concerts, comedy shows, etc. Additionally, tpac rents its facilities to three Performing Arts resident companies - the nashville opera association, nashville ballet, and the nashville repertory theatre, all three of which are non-profit organizations. Tpac also rents its facilities to outside promoters for events in which the promoters are at risk, and to the state of Tennessee (with rent waived) for state events. To support public programming, tpac operates its own ticketing services. Tpac supports its mission of providing Arts, culture and education for the community by fundraising from individuals, corporations, government and foundations.
