The New Jersey Mayors Committee on Arts and Culture is a statewide initiative to increase communication and share information with municipal leaders about the many ways arts and culture improve community life.
ArtPride New Jersey, in collaboration with the NJ State Council on the Arts, has participated in the NJ League of Municipalities Conference since 2005 and hosted panel discussions on topics ranging from arts education to building partnerships that help achieve social justice, civic identity, public health and safety, and economic revitalization using cultural resources.
The NJ Mayors Committee on Arts and Culture extends that collaborative relationship to share information and best practices through this new network.
