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.
