NJPAC and The Star-Ledger present Conversations

Arts Take Action: Sandy One Year Later

On the one-year anniversary of Hurricane Sandy, some of the State’s leading arts organizations gather for a reflective evening of free performance, visual arts and discussion.

NJPAC, in partnership with The Star-Ledger, presents a multimedia remembrance of the devastation and past year of recovery, as well as a conversation about future policy and action. Star-Ledger reporter Brian Donohue, whose short documentary, Splinters and Sand, will be screened, will moderate a panel with politicians, artists and city planners. Newly commissioned pieces, funded by the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation’s New Jersey Recovery Fund to support creative responses to Sandy, will be performed by the Atlantic City Ballet, Playwrights Theatre of New Jersey and Young Audiences New Jersey & Eastern Pennsylvania, among others.

The event also will serve as a social media hotspot for a live exchange between the panelists and audience members in attendance or at home.

Admission is free.
