MAP News: The MAP Grant Returns! and ADSR


We are pleased as punch to announce the return of the MAP's grant program!  As a way to give back to our community in response to the incredible creativity and support that we received during the {Re}HAPPENING events, we're using our proceeds from the 2010 & 2011 events to fund the Media Arts Project Community Grant series.



We'll be giving out grants of up to $1500 each to two WNC-based artists for the 2011 grant cycle. We encourage WNC-based artists to apply for funding to support a new or current project in the realms of Performance, Multimedia, Sculpture, Installation, New Media, Interaction, Sound, Photo / Video & Web Art.



Applications open July 15, and the deadline for proposals is August 15. Awarded applicants will be chosen by a jury of local artists, technologists and MAP community members. The two funded projects will be shown as part of the next {Re}HAPPENING, in spring 2012.  Detailed information and the grant application are here.



These grants continue the work of the Media Arts Advantage Fund (2006-2008), a joint project between the Media Arts Project and Advantage West.
