WHY JOIN THE SOUTH JERSEY CULTURAL ALLIANCE?

The answer is simple. Your membership matters! Together, we are the cultural assets that attract tourism and boost individual, economic, and community development in New Jersey’s eight southern counties: Atlantic, Burlington, Camden, Cape May, Cumberland, Gloucester, Ocean, and Salem.

Membership makes you a part of the wide-ranging network of creative professionals, organizations, and institutions that speak in one voice to advocate for funding and strong arts education in the schools as well as programs and partnerships that promote our region’s cultural events and strengthen our local communities.
