LA Freewaves: Do you dare support art on the edge?

Where can you see a bird’s eye view of thousands of rooftop gardens amid Hong Kong, a South African short experimental love story and a battle of stereotypes all in one place? Freewaves dares to unleash media art: * outside the art marketplace * outside the political mainstream * beyond US borders.

In 2006, Freewaves: * presented our most ambitious exhibition of 100 videos in our biennial festival * developed a new online curatorial model, working with diverse international curators, resulting in a truly global perspective * upgraded our website into an interactive, next generation festival venue.

In 2007, Freewaves: * is reengineering past festival websites into a searchable media arts archive * is gearing up for our 2008 festival in a new ground-breaking format.

Although Freewaves accomplishes a lot on a small budget, with the help of our supportive friends, it has become a challenge to survive the current economic and political environment. We must now rely more heavily on those who share our vision. Your donation of any amount will contribute immensely towards artists fees, equipment upgrades, technical advances, and public outreach.

With sincere thanks and continued hope for emerging ideas,

Anne Bray
Executive Director
