The Twelfth National Conference will take place in a set of majestic historical landmark buildings in Jersey City, New Jersey, only 15 minutes by car or PATH train to New York City. Serving as a hub and transit and commerce since the Revolutionary War era, Jersey City is also a hub of medicine and innovation.
The conference is being held at the historical Loews Movie Palace. Built in 1929 as one of the Landmark Wonder Theaters, it operated as a movie theater until the 1970s when it was abandoned and in danger of demolition. The Friends of Loews volunteers have lovingly restored the space and now operate it as a not-for-profit arts center, with the stated goal of renewing:
The unique combination of artistic ability with a sense of showmanship informed by democratic insight which, in the 20th century, melded the performing arts traditions of all the peoples who came to this country into a single force that has not only entertained us, but expressed our collective hopes and fears so dynamically (http://loewsjersey.org/)
