About coLAB Arts
coLAB Arts is a New Brunswick, NJ based non-profit arts organization who’s mission is to cultivate a hip, mindful, and inclusive Hub City community of artists, audiences, and critics empowered to create inspired and inspiring art. We support a variety of artistic endeavors, including THEATER, DANCE, FILM, VISUAL ART, WRITING.
Our full staff of Teaching Artists will return for the 2012-2013 school year teaching a full semester in the New Brunswick H.S. Theater Department.
In addition to our curriculum in Writing, Acting, Ensemble Performance, and Lighting Design this year will see the addition of Costume and Set Design all taught by alumni of Rutgers, Mason Gross School of the Arts M.F.A Alumni.
coLAB has received a grant from the Ray Legacy Foundation with matching funds form Drs. Jeffrey Longhofer and Jerry Floersch of the Rutgers School of Social Work to pay for a summer intensive experience for our students at the prestigious Contemporary American Theater Festival. Students will reside at CATF during the 2013 season while seeing shows, participating in workshops, and engaging with artists at the forefront of new theater in the U.S. For more information on CATF's educational residencies check them out at: http://www.catf.org/2012-season/hostel-youth.

After a tremendously successful benefit held at Foresgate Country Club on October 26th, the Rotary Club of New Brunswick has made a generous donation to help underwrite our high school residency. We are continually grateful for all those organizations and private donors who make this programming possible.
