New Jersey Arts and Culture Administrators of Color (NJACAC) is a network of professional arts administrators of color dedicated to advancing efforts related to equity, diversity, and inclusion within New Jersey’s arts community. This initiative is a partnership between New Jersey Theatre Alliance (NJTA), the state’s service organization for professional producing theatre companies, ArtPride New Jersey, the state’s largest arts service and advocacy organization, and New Jersey State Council on the Arts.
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. We welcome you to share resources to this document by emailing Deonté Griffin-Quick.
