New Jersey Emerging Arts Leaders


The New Jersey Emerging Arts Leaders (NJEAL) is a branch of the Americans for the Arts’ Emerging Leaders Network, which identifies and cultivates the next generation of arts leaders in America through professional development and peer networking opportunities on the national and local level. If you are looking to contribute your enthusiasm and creativity towards becoming a leader in the field of arts administration, consider joining us!

PositionDescriptionThanks to everyone who joined us on April 18 at Both Sides of the Position Description, an interactive conversation, open to everyone, about creating and interpreting job descriptions with attention to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in the workplace! This discussion, a continuation of our fall Creative Conversations event, was led by Brea M. Heidelberg, PhD, co-chair of the national Americans for the Arts Emerging Leaders Network Council, and was hosted by the West Windsor Arts Council.

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.
  • To provide professional development opportunities to the next generation of New Jersey’s arts leaders.
  • To provide peer-to-peer networking opportunities for emerging arts leaders to develop meaningful connections and benefit from shared experiences.
  • To improve the arts field by strengthening inter-generational communications.
  • To cultivate the next generation of arts advocates.
