We awarded another 53 projects yesterday at New Music USA. It was the fifth round of project grants awarded under the platform that’s been the center of my life for the last few years.
We’ve made it possible for fans to find new music through the granting process, made applying for funding like promoting your work, and now we’re expanding the support that a funder can provide to the arts by taking on the burden of building an active audience for our entire field.
I’ve never been prouder of the work we do at New Music USA, and this is the first week I’m doing that work remotely from Seattle. Even in a day and a half I find that the distance is giving me some perspective on what we’ve built, and how to make it stronger. There’s more great stuff ahead.
In the meantime, check out some of the new projects we funded, and follow them to get updates as their projects progress.
