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.

– Darren Freedom Green (Trenton)
