July 26, 2011 | By Liza Casabona | Post a Comment

(This post is excerpted from an article in the Aug. 1 issue of Local/State Funding Report.) Earlier this year, the National Endowment for the Arts replaced its category of grants for television and radio with a new, broader category that reflects the ways in which the media world is changing.

The new Arts in Media category (see “NEA Announces New Grant Category for Media Projects,” July 4, 2011) not only includes all of the formats that were eligible to receive funds through the old Television and Radio Grants category, but also extends eligibility to new media, mobile formats, games, dramatic narratives and other formats.

“We need to think differently about how we interface with each other, our communications and the world at large,” said Alyce Myatt, director of Media Arts for the National Endowment for the Arts at a recent roundtable hosted by Women in Film and Video in Washington D.C. Myatt and program officers from the NEA’s media grants programs answered questions from potential grantees.
