The New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) is looking for Artists in Residence to provide Arts & Well-Being programming to patients at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center.

Artists in Residence support the NJPAC Arts & Well-Being’s Arts in Healthcare initiative through the development and implementation of arts projects and processes in a variety of healthcare settings such as bedside art, group activities, and community projects. Programming will help patients and family members to connect more deeply with themselves and others through the arts. Artists create a safe and accepting environment for participants to discover their own creative resources. Artists are trained and supervised by NJPAC and hospital staff.
