It's Saturday. I'm sitting in my office, babysitting the studios so that a composer can watch our most recent creation on video and some students can rehearse a project.<P>I'm also working on some cash flow statements, and trying to figure out how to balance a certain line item. I'm desperately looking to squeeze $300-$500 out of nothing so the company can replace a broken video camera that we desperately need for rehearsal purposes.<P>I just got frustrated not being able to figure this out, and decided to check news headlines to see if we know who the next US President will be.<P>And I found this:<P><BR> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Army took an important step Friday toward transforming itself for future conflicts, announcing the award of a $4 billion contract for new wheeled combat vehicles. At the same time, it acknowledged that plans for fielding the new vehicles with infantry units will be delayed by more than a year. <HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><BR>I think my number may not be entirely right, but I believe we just approved an INCREASE for the NEA, so it's <B>total</B> operating budget is now about 98 million dollars or so.<P>98 million for the arts in the US. I can't find money for ONE video camera. US military gave out 4 billion dollar contract for new vehicles.<P>What am I doing here?

My memory is also tha the NEA budget seems to be about $100m. For comparison, the Arts Council of England and Wales (Scotland is separate) gave out grants directly or through Regional Arts boards of $300m last year plus Lottery grants of $250m. Funding on the Continent is generally higher.<P>However, because there is so little corporate sponsorship here, I suspect that your opposite numbers here will be doing the same sort of soul searching as you BabsLight.<P>Shall we shift this discussion to Backstage? <P><p>[This message has been edited by Stuart Sweeney (edited November 19, 2000).]

I never really thought of funding as a technical or production issue, but if that's the best place for it, sure, why not!<BR>

I hear you Babslight, about funding "issues". Discouraging, to put it mildly. Maybe we should all move to Canada or England or wherever they might appreciate us artists more. There would probably be other problems there, though. LIke what, I can't think of right offhand.

Mmmmm, don't move to Canada. Unless of course you wish to join the ranks of the starving artist's society. Image

Babs,<P>a thought: I recently got a technology grant for a company from Fiedelty Investment CO.If there is a branch office in your area they gave $15,000 for a Pro digital camera, editing system,and macG3 with software & color printer. They are interested in technology!! for the arts one of the few out there.<BR>Good Luck!
