New York Grantmakers in the Arts, Philanthropy New York and Media Impact Funders came together for a discussion among arts funders about the role of digital media within the arts, and the growing funding connections between the arts and media. In addition to data on the field of digital media funding and the arts, we explored the media-focused work of area cultural organizations; showing how they are using digital media to advance their work, grow audiences and reach, and streamline services.
Check out a video presented at our Molto+Media from earlier in the year.
This discussion followed the release of our new report, Molto+Media: Digital Culture Funding, which offers a glimpse into the many ways that technology and media are transforming arts organizations, often with the help of philanthropic investment.
The report offers broad data about the field and highlights nine organizations fusing media in a multitude of compelling ways. The organizations are Curtis Institute of Music, Children’s Theater Company (Minneapolis), Fractured Atlas, The J. Paul Getty Trust, On The Boards, Opera Philadelphia, Sundance Institute, Trey McIntyre Project, and WQXR.
