The mission of the New Jersey Arts Incubator is to create an environment where Essex County artists of all socio-economic and cultural origins may explore, create and communicate their craft in a supportive and nurturing environment; to present works of artistic expression by local, regional and visiting artists in an effort to foster the communications of ideas and perspectives; and to provide educational experiences to students of all ages with a special emphasis on programming for children of diverse cultures in low socio-economic backgrounds.
