We are all in this together.

Eight months ago the New Jersey Arts Administrators of Color network was formed in an effort go connect, cultivate, and empower people of color working in the state's arts and culture field. Who knew that today we would be facing both a worldwide health crisis and a national civil crisis? It is even more important for us to stand together today than ever before.

Access to Resources

Many POC arts leaders are being directly impacted by COVID-19. Layoffs, reduced hours, and cancelled egagements are affecting arts workers in our sector. Our committee has compiled a document of resources for artists and administrators of color who are in need of immediate support.
