Our 2018 Celebration had Newark Glowing & Growing!
Lauren Meehan, Director of the Newark Arts Education Roundtable, was born and raised in West Orange, NJ, Lauren pursued music, playing violin at the age of 8. While perfecting her musical craft in her teens, she performed at Lincoln Center, the Capitol, and the United Nations. GlassRoots met Lauren while she was serving as a Program Associate at the Victoria Foundation, supporting the foundation’s work in arts education and summer learning.
As Director of NAER, Lauren continues to work to ensure that all children in grades PreK-12 in the city of Newark have equitable access to high quality, sequential arts education opportunities, both in and out of school - work GlassRoots heartily supports!
