Join RevolutionNJ for a free, virtual informational workshop.


The League of Historical Societies of New Jersey —



Engaging the Arts in the American Revolution


WHEN: Thursday, January 18, 2024, 12 PM
WHERE: Virtual
ADMISSION: Free, but registration is required

New Jersey's rich arts community has a unique opportunity to engage their audiences with a once-in-a-generation initiative. 

RevolutionNJ, a collaboration between the New Jersey Historical Commission and the non-profit Crossroads of the American Revolution, is the state's official commemoration of the 250th anniversary of the founding of the United States in 2026. This initiative was developed with the hope of inspiring communities, organizations, and institutions to explore New Jersey's role in American history, drawing lessons from the past to apply to the present and future. 

Arts and cultural organizations across New Jersey are in an unparalleled position to engage the public with New Jersey's role in the American story through public arts and placemaking. 

Learn how some arts organizations have already integrated the broad goals, themes, and audiences that frame RevolutionNJ into new and existing programming. 

This workshop session will include a brief overview of the initiative, a highlight of existing programs and partnerships, and a brainstorm Q&A session to identify exciting opportunities to commemorate the 250th and beyond. 

The session is free to attend, but registration is required.

REGISTER HERE: JANUARY 18, 2024 | 12 noon ET
