The fund honours Peter Herrndorf, president and CEO of the National Arts Centre since 1999, whom the foundation acknowledged for strengthening the centre’s national character, setting high artistic standards and prioritizing education. Made possible by contributions from donors across Canada, the CEO’s National Fund stands at $1.2 million, and aims to support the NAC’s creation and sustenance of country-wide programming, such as national tours by the NAC orchestra, attracting artists from across Canada to take part in NAC-supported national showcases, and engaging Canadians via live NAC webcasts and podcasts.The National Arts Centre also announced the extension of Herrndorf’s contract until 2013.
