Newark Arts Education Roundtable

NAER Creative Community Sessions

Creative Community Sessions are coming up. Look for events in all 5 wards March 22nd, 29th, 30th; April 5th, 6th. Arts activities for young children and free food will be provided. Help us build our advocacy agenda! We hope to see you there!


The Newark Arts Education Roundtable (NAER) is a strategic alliance of 50+ arts education stakeholders, including public, charter, and private schools; artists; arts and cultural organizations; youth and community development entities; businesses; funders; and state and local government agencies. Our mission is to collaborate to ensure that all children in grades PreK-12 in the city of Newark have equitable access to high quality, sequential arts education opportunities, both in and out of school.

The Newark Arts Education Roundtable (NAER), with support from the National Endowment for the Arts invites all Newark artists, parents, students, teachers, teaching artists, funders, and community members to join us at Express Newark on Saturday, June 3, 2017 from 9am – 3pm for Developing Creative Minds: A City-Wide Arts Education Summit. At this event, we will present data on arts education access and participation in Newark, as well as share the local Arts Ed Now campaign tools created by the Newark community this spring. There will be opportunities to connect with arts programs, become a community advocate, and engage in thoughtful discussion with how NAER and the Newark community at large can increase arts education access for all Newark youth! Breakfast and lunch will be served.
