Media Arts Grant Proposals due 10/31 and 11/1.

We hope to see those of you in New York City on Tuesday at Issue Project Room in celebration of the book Transmission Arts: Artists and Airwaves (PAJ Publications: 2011). There is a terrific lineup of artists performing. Admission is free, and the night will surely be a special one.

New York State media artists and organizations: deadlines are drawing near for the Distribution Grant and The Media Arts Technical Assistance Fund, which are both regrant programs of NYSCA Electronic Media and Film. We look forward to receiving your proposals. Please help us spread the word to your peers and colleagues about these two unique opportunities.
Next Deadline: October 31, 2011

The Distribution Grant for New York State Artists provides support for the distribution of new works in film, video, sound, new-media, and media-installation. Grant awards assist artists in making recently completed works available to public audiences and may include, but are not limited to distribution and exhibition expenses such as: duplication of preview, screening, and exhibition copies; promotional materials including documentation and schematics of media-installation and new-media works. The rental or purchase of equipment essential for exhibition/distribution by individual artists is also eligible. Artists may request funding support up to a maximum amount of $10,000.


Next Deadlines: November 1, 2011; January 1, 2012

The Media Arts Technical Assistance Fund is designed to strengthen media arts organizations in all regions of New York State by providing funds with which media arts organizations can hire outside consultants to address capacity and technology needs in three specific areas:
  • Organizational Development
  • Professional Development
  • Conferences and Convening
NEW for 2012 and 2013!
The Fund’s current funding priorities include:
  • Projects that deepen and expand organizational online public presence and capacities.
  • New approaches to organizational management, through strategic utilization of web-based tools and platforms.
The maximum grant award is $4,000.

Guidelines, Deadlines, and Application Instructions:

Kabir Carter’s work moves between performance and installation and focuses on the physical and emotional effects of architecture and acoustics in private and public spaces.

Terry Nauheim explores sound and visual relationships through digital media, drawing, and installation.

Lázaro Valiente is Mexico City-based sound artist Mauricio Pastrana, his work is comprised of sounds and silence originating in the daily improvisations of life.
