Following nearly two years of increased trauma caused by uncertainty and life-threatening circumstances due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Newark youth need the support and freedom of arts education more than ever.

And though Newark’s schools and offices were closed for in-person instruction, the work of Arts Ed Newark was not disrupted – rather, we were able to remain actively responsive at the moment. Throughout the course of the pandemic, we have simultaneously assessed the needs of our network and offered resources. 

Indeed, through this work, we have been calling out the essential nature of the arts to promote safety, security, and healing for some time before the pandemic was a reality for our community.  

We became even more of an essential resource to partners, enhancing and increasing communication and networking efforts so our communities of teachers, arts organizations, community-based organizations did not feel isolated or alone. 

All children should have equitable access to high-quality, sequential arts education opportunities that support the achievement of state and national arts standards, both in and out of school.
