Arts at the Center of Learning

Partner Organizations

Organizations throughout the state help schools access the AIE residency Grant Program. 

Young Audiences New Jersey & Eastern Pennsylvania manages the AIE program state-wide. 

Regional partners manage residencies in their regions, helping schools connect AIE Residencies with other programs in their school and communities. Currently, Appel Farm Arts & Music Center is a regional partner in Southern New Jersey, and Morris Arts is a regional partner in Northern New Jersey. Young Audiences New Jersey & Eastern Pennsylvania, Appel Farm, and Morris Arts education staff work with schools and teaching artists to help support AIE Residencies - from the inital application through to the culminating event. Experienced partners from these organizations provide guidance, help, and best practices while also helping the steering committee to reach the residencies' planned goals and outcomes.
