Thank you for your interest in joining the Independent Arts & Media Board of Directors!
The IAM Board of Directors voted to increase our size to 15 members! We are currently recruiting, and welcome your interest.
Our mission is to support people and projects that use media and the arts to build community and participation, and thus strengthen “the culture of democracy.”
We use a mission-driven fiscal sponsorship program to activate creative and productive capacity in neglected communities; our long-term vision is to create an alternative, horizontal ownership model for public media and community arts.
In 2012 we received more than $300,000 in deductible funding for management and regranting to two-dozen fiscally sponsored affiliates.
We have no full-time staff, and work with contracted bookkeepers and CPAs to ensure operational integrity. The IAM Board otherwise directly oversees all programming.
We are currently updating these pages with the organization’s most recent financial information and public documents for 2011-2012.
Meanwhile: Please browse the archival materials below, and drop us line if you’d like to learn more.
