The New York State Council on the Arts in Partnership with Wave Farm: Media Arts Assistance Fund (MAAF) addresses capacity and technology needs in three areas critical for New York State media arts organizations, who face unique challenges in a field of rapid technology development. Eligible organizations have missions specific to the media arts, and dedicate the majority of their programming to technology as an art form. Applications from multi-disciplinary organizations will be considered on a case-by-case basis, but are not a MAAF priority. Organizations may request funding support up to a maximum amount of $4,000 for Organizational and Professional Development, or Convening. Conference attendance requests are limited to $500. Looking for the Media Match Up opportunity? Click Here.
