ABOUT

This year’s theme is

Art is medicine. The arts provide some of the most powerful outlets for spreading healing in our world. In acknowledgement of the challenges of our times, Newark Arts Festival 2022 aims to create a collective restorative experience through thoughtfully curated artwork, performances and programming meant to help our artist community and Festival attendees begin to heal holistically. The Festival will feature a lineup of national and local artists of all disciplines that have been challenged to demonstrate what healing means or looks like to them, and to inspire messages of hope, comfort, and encouragement.
