It’s June 30, and you know what that means: another round of project grants awarded on newmusicusa.org.
It’s great to see the platform continuing to grow, and to connect another cohort of awardees with each other and with their fans. I still don’t know any other grantmaking system that gives artists a practical and direct way to connect with audience members.
There’s a lot of potential in building grantmaking systems around the communications needs of the constituent community, and I believe this approach is going to spread well beyond new music in the years to come.
In the meantime, congratulations to the awardees, to the panelists, and to our staff. And for the rest of you, if you like what we’re funding, follow the projects on newmusicusa.org; you’ll get emailed updates from the artists whenever they have something to share with you or us.
