A united team of individuals all supporting the advancement of the largest indoor performance venue in North San Luis Obispo County.

Vicki van den Eikhof


I passionately believe that every person on this earth is born to be creative. It is imperative for our survival as well as our personal happiness, that we discover our creative outlets and learn to use them to make the world a better place. Arts education is a great way to do this. Every child deserves an arts education: performing arts, visual arts, dance, movement, music, creative writing, and everything in between. In the process of supporting my children's arts education, I discovered the TPAC. I realized that we have this beautiful facility in North County that is not living up to its potential and decided to do something about it. I'm very grateful to our board members who are so supportive of this amazing facility and have incredible vision for what it can be for our community.
