The Artists in Education Residency Grant Program is a true collaboration between schools, teaching artists, arts in education organizations in the state, and the New Jersey State Council on the Arts. Young Audiences New Jersey & Eastern Pennsylvania is the cosponsor partner to the NJSCA, managing the project state-wide. Regional Partner agencies work directly with funded schools in their region to assist them with accessing and managing residencies.
For more information about the program, please contact Michelle Baxter-Schaffer via email at Michelle.Baxter-Schaffer(at)sos.nj.gov, or by phone at 609-984-7019.
