Presentations Funds grants support New York State non-profit organizations for in-person presentations by independent media artists. The goal of this funding is to increase appreciation of electronic media and film through engagement between artists and audiences and to support programmatic initiatives within New York State’s arts and cultural organizations.
Presentation Funds are supported by the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) and administered by The ARTS Council of the Southern Finger Lakes (The ARTS Council).
Presentation Funds involve two key components – 1) an artist must present his or her own work and 2) an element of this presentation must interactively engage the audience while being distinct from the presentation of work.
There are three rounds of applications with the following deadlines:
- December 4, 2015 for programs occurring between January 1 and April 30, 2016
- April 8, 2016 for programs occurring between May 1 and August 31, 2016
- August 5, 2016 for programs occurring between September 1 and December 31, 2016
