New Jersey: New Jersey Arts at a Crossroads: Creative Solutions for Tough Economic Times

Arts organizations across the country are bracing themselves for the challenging economic times ahead. To address this important issue as a unified cultural community, New Jersey convened arts trustees and arts managers from across the state for a day of knowledge exchange. New Jersey Arts at a Crossroads: Creative Solutions for Tough Economic Times was framed with panel discussions by funders and lenders talking about the economic forecast, its ramifications for New Jersey’s non-profit arts industry, and short-term and long-term financing options. The convening included breakout sessions that discussed contingency planning and budgeting; smart investing for nonprofit organizations; board roles, responsibilities and liabilities; funding prospect research; and creative collaborations. The symposium was organized by New Jersey’s service organizations including the New Jersey State Council on the Arts, ArtPride New Jersey Foundation, the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation, New Jersey Theatre Alliance, Dance New Jersey, South Jersey Cultural Alliance, New Jersey Arts Education Partnership and the New Jersey Association of County Cultural and Heritage Agencies.
