Rhizome launches its annual Community Campaign today! True to our founding as an artist-centered network focused on a new medium, all our activities further a dynamic and groundbreaking art form, and an international community around it. We are reaching out to you to ask that you make contribution now during this important Campaign. Our goal is to raise $35,000, which will directly support our programs and services for artists.
With funds raised through our 2009 Campaign, we will:
Complete an upgrade of our online archive, the ArtBase, which holds over 2,500 works of digital art. Intended to enhance the understanding and visibility of new media art long-term, this overhaul involves a ground-up rebuild of the ArtBase, the integration of a more user-friendly, robust interface, and the inclusion of new metadata standards that will enrich each art entry.
Re-launch our website with more collaborative features. Scheduled to launch with the new ArtBase in spring 2010, the re-designed website will support artistic experimentation by providing more opportunities for artist to connect.
Continue and strengthen our key programming, such as the Commissions Program, the Writers Initiative, and New Silent Series - all designed to bring emerging artists working with technology to the forefront.
All of these initiatives are done in service to our community. But, we need your support to realize them. As an independent 501(c)3, Rhizome’s fundraising is entirely independent; we rely primarily on foundations, government agencies, an annual benefit and our community for support.
