The admission-free event is sponsored by Union County Performing Arts Center and Rahway Arts District and will feature representatives of local arts organizations with information on grant, showcase and educational opportunities. Attendees must RSVP through www.eventbrite.com.
Rahway Artists Meetup is an open house for individuals and arts groups seeking teaching and performing opportunities in the District’s newest performance venue at Hamilton Stage. It’s also a chance for area artists to get together and contemplate collaborations for the coming year.
Rahway Artists Meetup is the latest in a series of community gatherings linked to the city’s Our Town project funded by the National Endowment for the Arts.
“Our goal is to circulate ideas on ways to integrate the arts into every aspect of community life,” says Union County Performing Arts Center executive director Lawrence McCullough. “And the best way to have a good idea is to meet people who have lots of ideas.”
