Meet the women who are saving the arts in New Jersey! Join us for Women@NJPAC’s Leading Ladies panel discussion, where we’ll sit down for a chat with members of the powerhouse team behind the newly created New Jersey Arts and Culture Recovery Fund. This incredible initiative has already raised millions of dollars to keep the arts alive in the wake of coronavirus. We’ll also honor Women@NJPAC’s retiring trustees, including our beloved president Marcia Wilson Brown. This special online event is a must for any woman who cares about the arts—and it will leave you overflowing with optimism, inspiration and ideas.
