The Northern Tier Cultural Alliance (NTCA) was formed in 1995 by volunteers who had been engaged in a cultural inventory of the area as part of a 1992 Pennsylvania Heritage Commission project. Even as representatives of local cultural and heritage organizations themselves, they were overwhelmed with the wonderful, largely unsung artistry and heritage of the region. They shaped a mission of educating the public about cultural traditions, history and art of the Pennsylvania Northern Tier and assisting tradition bearers and traditional artists in the continuation and preservation of their work.

Today, NTCA fosters awareness and appreciation of the cultural traditions produced by the unique blend of diverse cultures found in our region through events, exhibits,  educational programs and community involvement.

In support of its mission NTCA offers support to folk and traditional artists and community organizations primarily in 6 northern Pennsylvania counties: Bradford, Potter, Sullivan, Susquehanna, Tioga and Wyoming.

NTCA is a registered 501(c)3 organization and donations to the organization are tax-deductible.
