Registration is open for this virtual gathering of the New Jersey Arts Community. These two-days are built around reflecting, healing, and learning as we work towards a more equitable, just, and anti-racist arts and cultural sector.

We welcome and encourage participation by all staff members of arts and cultural organizations, as well as trustees, independent artists, unaffiliated arts and culture administrators, students, and anyone else interested in being part of creating a more equitable arts and cultural field in New Jersey. Individual, student, and group tickets are available.
