OPEN CALL DATES: April 17th through June 1st 2023

How does culture influence the artistic process? How does culture impact a community? Each of us has our own thoughts, perceptions, behaviors, and expressions based on our lived experience. Adopting a cross-cultural perspective starts with listening and learning from others who are different from us, and appreciating the beauty of how they experience and show up in the world.

The Newark Arts Festival 2023, open to the public from September 27th through October 29th, will provide Cross Cultural Perspectives in a truly powerful way: through the arts. NAF 2023 will enhance each attendee and participant’s cultural experience by providing a rich bounty of diverse viewpoints, artistic mediums and voices to be valued.
