It is National Arts in Education Week - September 12 - 18, 2021

This National Arts in Education Week, show your support of our collective efforts towards increased arts education. Help Arts Ed Newark do more for the young people of Newark! 

2021 has continued to surprise and challenge us all in so many ways - through the uncertainty, Arts Ed Newark, has been proud to bring our resources and advocacy, and our trauma-informed and healing centered work to even more arts educators, schools, and organizations  - at a time when it is needed more than ever! 

The burden of trauma in Newark youth is very high and bears deep consequences. We seek to provide adults working in youth-led spaces the proven and adaptable tools of arts education to create more trauma-informed and healing centered spaces.

Attention for this work grows and we have expanded the network across the country. As of the end of last school, we have trained 300+ educators and community members. Feedback is strong:

“I've learned the importance of the healing process as a community. I will definitely use my music classes as a place where students can start the process.” - Miyuki Takahashi-Rivera, Music Teacher, JFK School 

“This training helped me have a better understanding about how trauma affects us all, and it gave me some tools to start addressing trauma in my arts classroom. I started applying the idea of a "safety plan" with my students. We are living in difficult times, and having them/us come up with a safety plan has been very helpful to me and my students.” -  Claudia Escalante, Music Teacher, Ann Street School
