Today, Rhizome kicks off the annual Community Fundraiser. Every year, we reach out to our community for a piece of financial support that is critical to our overall funding mix. This year, we need to raise $30,000 by January 14th and we ask that you consider making a contribution today to help us meet this goal.
This year marks a particularly exciting year for Rhizome, with new staff and new ideas that will help us to build on our rich history and programs.
Your donation will help:
•Expand our editorial team – bringing in more writers from around the world.
•Host Rhizome events and exhibitions beyond NYC – reaching our international community.
•Secure crucial tools and equipment for preservation – preserving works of art with a strengthened conservation program.
•Commission new works of art – directly supporting artists through grants.
•Improve development of the Rhizome website – making it easier for you to use.
The biggest reward we can offer is knowing that you've helped Rhizome continue. On top of this, seven artists from the Rhizome community have generously donated limited-edition artworks for this year's fundraiser — a gesture of their support for the organization.
Donate now and receive as our thank you, works by Sebastian Schmieg and Silvio Lorusso, ReCode Project, Tabor Robak, Adam Harvey, Phillip Stearns and Matthew Plummer-Fernandez.
As a non-profit organization, Rhizome relies on the community to help realize our mission and goals. We are a small but extremely passionate group of people dedicated to supporting art engaged with technology. If you’ve visited the Rhizome website, discovered a new artist, used the Artbase to view seminal works, posted on the community boards, read and shared an article, come to our events, or engaged with Rhizome in any number of ways – please consider donating this year.
