aTi is a professional development program cosponsored by the NJSCA and Arts Horizons. It is a ten-day summer program that offers educators, teaching artists and artists opportunities for artistic growth similar to the experience students encounter through AIE residencies and provides tools for bringing the art form back to the classroom. Participants work with internationally known artists in daily workshops and attend sessions that address current art and educational issues.
Short-term writing residencies (5, 8 or 12 days) in poetry, prose and playwrighting are available through this program coordinated by Playwrights Theatre of NJ. Call PT/NJ at 973-514-1787.

The New Jersey Arts Education Partnership (NJAEP) was established in 2007 with the mission to provide a unified voice for a diverse group of constituents who agree on the educational benefits and impact of the arts, specifically the contribution they make to student achievement and a civilized, sustainable society. The NJAEP carries out this mission by providing a clearinghouse for information and best practices, providing opportunities for people to come together on topics of interest and initiating advocacy opportunities to effect public information and policy on arts education issues.
