Webinar: NEA media arts guidelines discussion

National Endowment for the Arts
Media Arts Guidelines
January 26th - 3pm

The Media Arts funding area of the National Endowment for the Arts continues to evolve in tandem with the dynamic nature of the media arts field. We would like the public’s feedback on our approach to this funding category.

In 2010, the National Endowment for the Arts changed the category of “Arts on Radio and Television” to “Arts in Media.” This change reflects the variety of media through which artists are now creating and the public are consuming art. On January 26, 2012 the Endowment will conclude its proposal review for Arts in Media. We are holding a webinar to capture the reflections of our proposal advisory panelists and the public to the Endowment’s shift from “Arts on Radio and Television” to “Arts in Media.” You’ll be able to hear directly from NEA staff and members of the Arts in Media panels and text to us your questions and comments.

The webinar will not focus on any individual proposal and no specific application will be identified or discussed. We will use this forum to hear reactions to our guidelines and what, in general terms, they yielded from the field. We’ll examine the expansion from radio and television to other distribution platforms including video games and web-based content, we’ll explore the impact of media as it is now being used in other artistic disciplines, and we’ll look for opinions on the state of the media arts field and what leadership the Endowment might provide in order to effectively foster artistic excellence and best serve the American public.
