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.

Gathering Ground benefits from the active participation and wisdom of dozens of individuals who serve as members of our local community-based Host Teams.

“It was a delight to work with all of you on this initiative that is so critical to the future of our community. I have lived and worked in Atlantic City for 26 years. During those years, I have heard and read about so many “plans” that never were brought to completion. Thanks to Gathering Ground, we now have a blueprint for success. What you have done for us will impact the lives of so many people for years to come.”

– Diane Ramftl – Former Regional Charter Marketing Specialist, Harrahs (Atlantic City)
