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.

Our June Citywide Arts Education Summit was a great success, thanks to Express Newark, our volunteers, presenters, guest speaker Dr. Bettina Love, and the National Endowment for the Arts. We had more than 100 people come learn about Newark arts education opportunities, ways to advocate and connect. The conversation continues…check us out!
