NEW YORK MEDIA ARTS MAP

http://nymediaartsmap.org/

To be newly launched in 2019, the New York Media Arts Map is designed for cultural organizations, artists, and the general public; it features organizations with a deep commitment to media art and to technology as an art form. The Map is a vital tool for identifying art and technology networks, services and opportunities throughout New York State, connecting us to each other and to essential information about Media Arts statewide. The Map features a variety of resources including a funding calendar, consultant directory and convening archive. The Map also identifies contemporary media art activities, events and initiatives on a local and regional scale, representing a broad spectrum of independent media practice.

Hosted by Wave Farm, the Map is a project of the NYSCA Electronic Media & Film Program, funded by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.


FISCAL SPONSORSHIP

In addition to the opportunities and resources above, Wave Farm provides fiscal sponsorship to artists on a case-by-case basis for projects that are aligned with Wave Farm's organizational mission. Inquiries should be directed to mag@wavefarm.org well in advance of any related grant deadline.
