Nice to meet you!

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 comprehensive arts education programs, and engage our community with free cultural events across the city.

We’re also pushing the boundaries of what an Arts Center can do. We’re proud to prioritize inclusion in every aspect of our mission. We welcome the most diverse audiences and artists in the country to our stages and lead public conversations on social justice issues. We foster an equitable workplace. And we harness the power of the arts to benefit the health of our community. Our original productions tour the country and extend our reach to a national audience. And we’re driving the charge to reimagine and revitalize our downtown neighborhood.

Whoever you are, and wherever you’re from, you’ll find a creative home here at NJPAC.

We in the arts are absolutely delighted to show you a good time in one of our performance spaces, but I urge you to look a little deeper. We have so much more to offer.

NJPAC President & CEO
