National Endowment for the Arts to Grant $84,000 to Newark Arts Education Roundtable for Trauma-Informed Care Work

National Endowment for the Arts to Grant $84,000 to Newark Arts Education Roundtable for Trauma-Informed Care Work

(NEWARK, NJ) -- As part of the National Endowment for the Arts’ second major funding announcement for 2018, NEA Chairman Jane Chu has approved an Art Works grant of $84,000 to Newark Arts on behalf of the Newark Arts Education Roundtable for its planned trauma-informed care work. NAER will be partnering with two local organizations, Greater Newark Healthcare Coalition and My Brother's Keeper Newark. The Art Works category is the NEA’s largest funding category and supports projects that focus on the creation of art that meets the highest standards of excellence, public engagement with diverse and excellent art, lifelong learning in the arts, and/or the strengthening of communities through the arts.

“Newark Arts is grateful for the support of the NEA and the advocacy of Senator Bob Menendez, Senator Cory Booker and Representative Donald Payne, Jr., who truly understand the importance of trauma-informed arts programs here in Newark,” says Newark Arts Executive Director, Jeremy Johnson.

"We have been looking for ways to engage the best practices of what we know arts education provides for young people with the recent advances in trauma-informed care. This grant will marry those efforts, already ongoing in Newark," says NAER Director, Lauren Meehan. 

The initiative will, over two years, create a shared learning community of both arts education and healthcare professionals, encouraging cross-sector partnerships, widening the reach of the arts into another collective impact initiative that also endeavors to improve the lives of children, and share best practices that exist in both sectors.

“The variety and quality of these projects speaks to the wealth of creativity and diversity in our country,” said NEA Chairman Jane Chu. “Through the work of organizations such as Newark Arts Education Roundtable in Newark, NJ, NEA funding invests in local communities, helping people celebrate the arts wherever they are.”
