Mission Statement

The Asbury Park Arts Council (APAC) works to support, advocate and promote arts-centric initiatives, businesses and development. Our primary goal is to ensure the arts are considered in municipal policy-making via the creation and implementation of an Arts and Culture plan within the Asbury Park Master Plan. APAC was formed to be a bridge between the local arts community and the City of Asbury Park, fostering the understanding that arts are the economic engine of the City.
