New Jersey Emerging Arts Leaders


The New Jersey Emerging Arts Leaders (NJEAL) is an active network of early career arts professionals, under 35 years of age or with less than 10 years of experience in the field, designed to cultivate the next generation of arts leaders and arts advocates in New Jersey. 

Thanks to everyone who attended this year’s Creative Conversations event!
Influence from the Middle
Tuesday, October 18 at Rider University

Influence from the Middle was an interactive breakout conversation about the role of entry and middle management regarding developing and implementing ideas and strategies on behalf of your organization pertaining to equity in the arts as it relates to diversity, inclusion and intersectionality.

The Goals of the New Jersey Emerging Arts Leaders Network:

  • To promote partnerships and relationships within New Jersey’s community of artists, advocates, and the creative sector.
