Agency: National Endowment for the Arts (NEA)
Program: Arts in Media
Deadline: September 1, 2011
Funding Opportunity Number: 2011NEA01AIM
Program Description: The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) seeks to make the excellence and diversity of the arts widely available to the American public through every available media platform including television, radio, the Internet, interactive and mobile technologies, digital games, and satellite. By increasing the accessibility and impact of the arts, the Arts Endowment aims to strengthen the creativity of our nation.
Grants are available to support the development, production, and national distribution of innovative media projects about the arts (e.g., visual arts, music, dance, literature, design, theater, musical theater, opera, folk & traditional arts, and media arts including film, audio, animation, and digital art) and media projects that can be considered works of art. The NEA is seeking and will give priority to artistically excellent projects that have the potential to reach a significant national audience, through their primary platform, regardless of the size or geographic location of the applicant organization. Only projects of the highest artistic excellence and merit, in both media production and subject matter, will be funded.
Projects may include high profile multi-part or single television and radio programs (documentaries and dramatic narratives); media created for theatrical release; performance programs; artistic segments for use within an existing series; multi-part webisodes; installations; and interactive games. Short films, five minutes and under, will only be considered in packages of three or more. Projects may deal with any subject matter or art form, and those targeted to children and youth are welcome. The agency encourages innovative, entertaining, compelling, and artistically crafted media projects that not only increase access to, but also enhance public knowledge and understanding of, the arts.
Funding Level: The range of awards is between $10,000 and $200,000. All grants require a nonfederal match of at least 1 to 1. The Arts Endowment’s support of a project may start on May 1, 2012, or any time thereafter. Generally, a grant period of up to three years is allowed.

How ideology and power define both our economic and environmental future
Join DePaul’s Institute for Nature and Culture as we explore how U.S. capitalism fosters the development of the world in its image. What is the relationship between capitalism and climate change? Is capitalism natural and hence unavoidable? Or are there alternatives? At this historic time of pressing ecological problems and record inequality the answers to these questions will determine the economic and environmental conditions under which the world’s population will live for generations.
