So this thing that I work on, the platform for New Music USA’s grantmaking, is once again in high gear. Yesterday we awarded 62 more projects with almost $300,000.
But the best part is that you can follow any of the projects you like. The project pages let you hear everything we awarded, and you can sign up for updates to make sure you don’t miss the chance to buy tickets to shows or recordings when they’re released. Here are all the newly awarded projects. (“Fall-2014” is the name of the round, because that’s when the projects were submitted).
We want to do a HUGE amount more for artists than just award money. We want to give artists and fans a chance to connect, bring people to shows, and sell records. There’s a lot of work that goes into applying for a grant, and at New Music USA we’re trying to make that work go as far as it possibly can for the artists who do it.
This is only the third round of project grants we’ve awarded, so we’ve got a lot more in store.
But in the meantime, GO FOLLOW SOME PROJECTS!
