Registration Open for NJ’s 2018 Telling Untold Histories Unconference!
Telling Untold Histories is New Jersey’s annual unconference that looks for human stories yet to be told – explores these histories and asks why some stories remain untold. Our theme for this year is sanctuary spaces. How can our institutions be sanctuary spaces for diverse communities?
It's going to be an exciting and packed two-day event in Paterson, home to Paterson Great Falls National Historical Park.
The 2018 conference features an opening plenary discussion, "Embracing the Future," with moderator Briann Greenfield and panelists Robert Guarasci, Randall Mason, and Bernice Radle.
Popular Culture and American Theatre: Past, Present, and Future
While sometimes overshadowed by popular culture—in the way that movies, television, sports, digital media, fashion, and politics are in the immediate frenetic moment—theatre has nonetheless lasted the march of history and both infiltrated and been infiltrated by popular culture’s force.

Whether you have a great idea for an exhibit or you want to work with a neighborhood organization on an outreach project, if your building needs a new HVAC system or you want to develop a strategic plan, there could be funding out there to support these kinds of endeavors.
