ArtPride is proud to partner with the New Jersey State Council on the Arts to present JerseyArts.com, the business-to-consumer site for the statewide Discover Jersey Arts campaign and one-stop shop for what’s going on in New Jersey’s arts scene.
Given the current social distancing climate, when most organizations are not hosting typical events at physical venues, we have transitioned the site to a cleaner, simplified, mobile responsive portal featuring the content we are able to offer right now: our current event campaign, our ongoing feature stories, and our membership program. This means we have currently closed off the outdated and inefficient event listings and directory portions of the site, which allows us to streamline the content to better serve the public and reduce the amount of misinformation possible on the site. This transition period also allows us to reevaluate how best to serve the field and our audiences and consider how to improve the services we offer. Thanks for your patience as we work through the summer to improve our site in the long term, while currently putting our best and most accurate content right at the center of the viewing experience.
The site will be regularly updated to point you directly to our latest Culture Vultures feature stories, podcasts, and videos, and to make sure you have access to a selection of virtual events through the Jersey Arts at Home guide, which will be updated on a rolling basis throughout the COVID-19 social distancing situation. We’ve also begun highlighting organizations that are back open in a limited capacity through the Jersey Arts Live guide.
Virtual Event Content
Although we are not currently offering guaranteed event listings, given the insurmountable task of maintaining accuracy in an environment of ever-changing event formats, we do plan to continue featuring JAM organizations' events!
To be considered for inclusion in our current Jersey Arts at Home virtual event messaging campaign, we invite eligible organizations to submit their events through a dedicated form. Please note this is a highlight campaign and not an exhaustive event calendar. We are not able to feature all events at all times through this particular program. We will do our best to highlight a representative selection of events in different genres from groups throughout the state, within the limited capacity of our transition technology.
We recognize that while the pandemic situation has limited organizations' capacity, some are able to open their doors to the public again. We are featuring those organizations in our Jersey Arts Live guide. If your organization is now offering live, in-person programming, please let us know and we will do our best to inform our audience!
Through its popular feature stories, video segments, and podcasts, JerseyArts.com plans to continue producting original content under its Culture Vultures brand in the form of news articles and behind-the-scenes interviews with the most intriguing arts personalities from and performing in New Jersey. This content will be promoted even more centrally during summer 2020.
Featuring a rotating staff of freelance contributors, Culture Vultures has featured interviews with Edward Albee, Steve Martin, Ani DiFranco, David Hyde Pierce, Winnie Holzman, Barry Manilow, John Waters and many more. Check back each Tuesday for a new feature story and once a month for a new video segment and podcast.
