Review for Art Pride New Jersey Foundation Inc, Burlington, NJ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been involved since the inception of ArtPRIDE and could not imagine New Jersey's arts organizations functioning without this great partnership. The organization does an incredible amount of outreach to large and small arts organizations, all with the same high level of professionalism. ArtPRIDE is on top of the critical issues facing cultural agencies at the Federal and State level and is quick to get out the word when action is needed. Many may not realize the organization's constituents are not limited to arts organizations....but also includes those providing access to the historical and humanities resources within the State. Although their staffing is small the value of their services is huge. To my knowledge no other organization in New Jersey plays such a major role in collaboration with the arts, history and humanities.....maybe not in the country. ArtPRIDE's ability to maintain a high level of dialogue with the appointed leadership of these State agencies and the respect the government agencies have for ArtPRIDE attests to its value. I am confident that legislators also are appreciative of ArtPRIDE;s ability to inform and provide critical details that impact legislative decision making.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

that able to bring a diverse group of leaders from the State Arts Council's Board and staff, directors from arts organizations, department heads from Rutgers, the State University and individuals from Dept of Labor to create a new collaboration.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The quality and dedication of the staff

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Always caring, always professional and well prepared

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

provide more staff in order to work a more appropriate work week rather then the 60 - 70 hours currently the norm. They'd be in a better position to advocate for more issues impacting the field.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every month

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field & Recently initiated dialogue and planning to generate greater awareness and support for the role the arts play in educating a well prepared workforce. The goal is to generate a common vocabulary that is of use to both the Department of Labor and iits work.
