Teaching Artist Speed Networking Event!

Learn about employment opportunities and resources from arts education organizations across New Jersey.

The New Jersey State Council on the Arts will be hosting a free, virtual meet and greet for teaching artists and arts organizations on June 12, 2023 | 2:00 – 3:30 PM. Registered teaching artists will have the opportunity to meet with arts organizations looking to engage with and hire teaching artists.

HOW IT WORKS: Teaching artists will be able to self-select breakout rooms managed by arts organizations across the state. Organizations will be assigned 15 minutes to present about their programming and allow for TAs to ask questions about their hiring requirements, available positions, and more. At the conclusion of the 15 minutes, TAs will have the opportunity to self-select another organization or stay in the current organization’s breakout room. Presentation materials for all participating organizations will be made available to registered teaching artists.

WHO WILL BE THERE: The State Arts Council welcomes arts organizations from across the state, as well as the Teaching Artists of the Mid-Atlantic, the region’s service and advocacy organization for teaching artists. To learn more about who will be in attendance, view the Speed Networking Brochure.

The Arts Council will serve as a connector and resource during the event. State funding for projects, fellowships, or additional work opportunities will not be discussed during these sessions. To keep up to date on opportunities for artists, please sign up for the Council’s Opportunities for the Field newsletter.  

Registration is required to access the organizational materials, as well as attend the Speed Networking Event. Registration will close on Monday, June 5. No late registrations will be accepted.

The New Jersey State Council on the Arts, created in 1966, is a division of the NJ Department of State and a partner agency of the National Endowment for the Arts. The Council was established to encourage and foster public interest in the arts; enlarge public and private resources devoted to the arts; promote freedom of expression in the arts; and facilitate the inclusion of art in every public building in New Jersey. The Council believes the arts are central to every element we value most in a modern society including: human understanding; cultural and civic pride; strong communities; excellent schools; lifelong learning; creative expression; and economic opportunity.
