Join a vibrant community championing the arts across New Jersey! Jersey Arts Marketers (JAM) is a regional group of marketing, public relations, and development professionals from New Jersey-based arts organizations that work cooperatively toward furthering the Discover Jersey Arts (DJA) program’s statewide audience development goals.
JAM meets regularly throughout the year to address common issues, foster professional development, and coordinate ongoing cooperative programs. Through JAM’s input and collaboration, we strive to further develop DJA as a resource for both the arts community and its patrons.
With your membership in the JAM Network, you can unlock a treasure trove of benefits designed to elevate your presence in the arts scene.

Your artistic ventures will reach a diverse and growing audience, with nearly 13,000 arts enthusiasts following us on social platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn. Engage with nearly 80,000 subscribers eagerly awaiting our Feature Stories newsletter.
