The National Endowment for the Arts has selected two ITVS interactive projects to receive funding through its Arts in Media Grants.
This week, the National Endowment for the Arts announced projects selected for funding through its Arts in Media Grants Program. We’re proud to announce that two interactive projects, funded through ITVS’s Project 360 Initiative, have garnered NEA support.
Power Poetry, inspired by the film To Be Heard by Roland Leigardi-Laura, the world’s first mobile poetry community for youth, encourages youth to write poems and take action through text and micropoems. Our Mother Tongues, inspired by the film We Still Live Here by Anne Makepeace, provides an interactive journey through Native American languages and the burgeoning movement among American Indians to save them.
In addition, the NEA has also awarded funding to a Facebook game created by Games for Change as a companion to the Half The Sky film series, airing as a special presentation on Independent Lens this fall.
We’re thrilled that these innovative projects and the talented, independent makers responsible for them will receive additional support from the NEA. We also congratulate many of our colleagues in the field. See the full list of grantees here.
