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 September 12. 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.

Make An Impact

When you see a breathtaking performance, when you send a child to dance class, when you connect with your neighbors at a festival: Life feels richer. Community grows stronger. The world gets better. Your support allows NJPAC to transform the lives of children and adults in Newark and beyond.

Summer is here!

And that means our free Sounds of the City concerts on Thursday nights are back! This year, tune into the live DJ dance parties on Facebook.
