About this Event

ArtPride’s first membership meeting in several years comes at a crucial time.

Public arts funding at a critical crossroads. In times of uncertainty and division, it’s important to remember that the arts bring people together. This meeting will gather arts professionals, advocates, and leaders from our 200+ member organizations at the Avenel Performing Arts Center. A shining example of creative placemaking, APAC is the perfect location to highlight the connection between the arts and economic development.

Featuring:

Savion Glover, keynote speaker

Savion Glover, the virtuoso rhythm tap dancer, choreographer, director, and actor who revitalized and re-rhythmatized tap dancing for the millennium generation, was born in Newark, New Jersey!

As a former NEA grantee, Mr. Glover can speak to the importance of public funding and support of the arts. His roles as professional artist, teacher, and Newark legend offer a unique insight into the importance of arts advocacy, the value of arts education, and how the arts build creative, safe spaces for all of us to grow and thrive.
