Arts Access Initiative

The Arts Access Initiative is a program developed by bergenPAC to further its mission of making the live performing arts accessible to all. In an effort to enhance the quality of life of the residents in our diverse community, bergenPAC provides free tickets to organizations who serve individuals who would otherwise be unable to experience the live performing arts. Last year, over 7,000 tickets were granted to individuals.

If you are a nonprofit, community organization or other worthy organization, who would like to provide their members with access to this program, please download the Arts Access Application below and return a filled out copy of the form to [email protected]*.
