We believe arts and ideas matter.

We are continually seeking ways to serve our community by bringing arts and ideas into as many lives as possible.

Park City Institute is a non-profit organization, dedicated to bringing performing arts from the international stage to the Park City stage for the illumination of residents and visitors alike.

We host under-served audiences at our performances as guests of the community; because we are all one community and we all benefit from the power of the arts. Our guests have included Summit County senior citizens; Treasure Mountain Middle School leadership class; Latinos in Action; Peace House clients; local police and firefighters; Holy Cross Ministries clients; bus drivers and snow plow drivers and more, so much more.

OUR MISSION STATEMENT: We enrich community by providing innovative experiences that Entertain, Educate & Illuminate.

Since 1998, PCI (formerly Park City Performing Arts Foundation) has presented internationally renowned and cutting edge musicians, actors, authors, comedians, dancers, speakers and film at The George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles Center for the Performing Arts (a joint-use facility with the Park City School District). We are presenting our 11th season of headliner summer concerts at Deer Valley Resort during Summer 2014.

PCI is dedicated to introducing young people to the arts through free student outreach workshops, shows and demonstrations. We bring nationally recognized performers into the classroom to mentor and inspire our local students and their teachers. This costs us more because we pay higher fees to the performer for their participation in these teaching activities, and also for additional days of accommodations, food and transportation.

We proudly launched The Mega-Genius Supply Store and IQ HQ – an after school literacy program and very thinky retail store – in January 2010. And PCI continues to illuminate with TEDxParkCity events, Curiosities evenings and the Park City Institute / Strategic News Service “Future in Review” Speaker Series.
