The New Music Capacity Building Program
New Music USA is leading a two-year capacity-building program for a diverse cohort of small sized groups committed to presenting, performing, or promoting new music by living music creators on a regular basis. This new program will combine financial support with professional development opportunities to aid ten NYC-based organizations as they navigate their way through the next stages of COVID-19 and beyond.
The program will offer a flexible approach to the selected groups or organizations; each will receive $5,000 per year for two years, for a total of $10,000 each, in order to implement organizational plans that they will design in consultation with New Music USA staff and industry experts. Program content will be dictated by the participating organizations. At this stage, the following topics are expected to be of importance:
– audience development
– digital marketing and presentation
– equity and inclusion
– peer collaboration
– scenario planning
Applicants must be based in New York City, as defined by the five boroughs of Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, and the Bronx.
