MAAF for Organizations

Peer-to-Peer Mentoring

NYSCA Electronic Media & Film in Partnership with Wave Farm

Funding supports travel expenses related to a professional visit to a peer media arts organization anywhere in New York State as well as a mentoring fee to the host organization. As we know, technology is an ever-evolving event that challenges our capacity to meet the benefits of its creative potential. And often, there is no greater benefit than learning from our peers. The MAAF Peer-to-Peer Mentoring opportunity encourages organizational staff to travel, site visit, see what others are doing, and how they are talking about it.

  • Funding Available: Applicant organization receives travel subsidy based on distance, travel time, and mode of transportation. Mentor organization receives a $250 host fee

  • Notification: Typically within 30 days
  • Period of Support: Determined by applicant, within a 12-month period
  • Final Report Deadline: 60 days following support period end-date
  • Important Eligibility Notes:
