Public Funding And Media Arts
Public media funding, although somewhat enigmatic from the outside, has generally operated within a consistent set of policies and guidelines, impervious to changes in staff or government administration. But now, ill the stark light of a difficult political climate, is this changing? Representatives of four major national and regional funders -the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, Public Broadcasting Service, New York State Council on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities-will come together to present their programs and discuss agendas amidst what many have called a "crisis" of arts policy and politics.
