Impact Stories

In Nov. 2021 after ten years of our evolving mission and impact, we changed our name to Gathering Ground. You may still find reference to our old name Creative New Jersey in posts created prior to Nov. 2021.

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. 


“Walls came down, bridges were built, inspiration was shared, challenges were tackled, hope was renewed because people who care took the time to come together to have meaningful conversation.Thank you for creating the environment to make this possible. We are stronger together.”

– Doug Goulding, Chief Serving Officer at NCS Paterson and the Paterson Health Initiative
