NJPAC In Your Living Room

Tune In!

We stand in solidarity with those who struggle for justice. We believe in equal rights for everyone, regardless of race, religion or background and celebrate the power of community to positively impact society. We know that, as Dr. King said, “the moral arc of the universe is long, but it bends towards justice.” Learn more about NJPAC’s social justice initiatives here.

New Jersey Performing Arts Center

We’re NJPAC, the anchor cultural institution for the city of Newark and the state of New Jersey. As a nonprofit arts organization, we enhance and transform lives every day. We delight audiences with world-class performances, nurture students through our education programs, and engage our community with free events and festivals across the city. Whoever you are, and wherever you’re from, you’ll find a creative home here.

NJPAC will resume its performances on January 1. Until then, we invite you to visit NJPAC in Your Living Room, a curated collection of past Arts Center performances, content from our partners, educational videos for children and much more. Click here.
