MAAF for Organizations

NYSCA Electronic Media/Film in Partnership with Wave Farm

For organizations, Media Arts Assistance Fund (MAAF) provides funds to hire outside consultants to support organizational and professional development including addressing the role of technology in the current transition of public engagement. MAAF also supports peer-to-peer mentoring and convening and conference attendance. Eligible organizations have missions specific to the media arts, dedicate the majority of their programming to technology as an art form, and are current NYSCA grantees. Priority is given to NYSCA Electronic Media/Film grantees; applications from multi-disciplinary organizations, which incorporate technology as an art form will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

NYSCA will be continuing to support our field in FY2021 as we navigate the challenges of the ongoing health crisis. The state is contending with a $16 billion loss, and without federal aid must reduce spending to balance the budget. A spending plan is expected to be released by the state in late 2020, and we will provide further direction at that point. More at
