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.
