Arts Corridor Partnership

Icons for cross-sector, arts & culture, small business, economic growth

The two county-wide Monmouth Calls to Collaboration facilitate the launch of a cross-sector initiative designed to drive tourism, arts and culture, and the downtown local economies of eastern Monmouth County’s train-line towns. Key collaborators of this new MoCo Arts Corridor Partnership include Monmouth County Division of Planning, NJ Transit, Monmouth County’s Chambers of Commerce, Monmouth Arts and many local tourism councils.

“During the process, a wonderful synergy has developed. The weekly Host Team meetings have united our Host Team, and forged new relationships between us all, as well as the businesses and community organizations that we represent. I applaud Gathering Ground for helping communities look at themselves through a process that embraces inclusivity, accountability and openness.”

– Rachael Faillace – Chair, Rahway Call to Collaboration Host Team | Former Executive Director, Rahway Arts District (Rahway)
