MAAF for Individual Artists

NYSCA Electronic Media/Film in Partnership with Wave Farm

For individual artists, the Media Arts Assistance Fund (MAAF) provides support for the completion, distribution and exhibition of new works in all genres of sound and moving image art, including emergent technology. Grant awards assist artists in completing new work, reaching public audiences, and advance artistic exploration and public engagement in the media arts.

The state is contending with a $16 billion loss, and without federal aid must reduce spending to balance the budget.
