Membership – tiered

The NMC has a membership tier for everyone!

The paid membership program that will help us enhance and sustain our mission to be a leader in the field of new media art and scholarship. At 16 years old, the NMC was founded in 2004 as an all volunteer-run affiliate organization of CAA, with a mission to advocate for and advance new media art, artists, and scholars. We organize numerous events annually at the CAA conference, as well as symposia and exhibitions like the 2019 Border Control Symposium at the University of Michigan. We provide resources vital to our community, including our world-recognized scholarly journal, Media-N. We maintain a robust website and email newsletter, which offers up-to-date member news, opportunities, and other information. With your help, we can grow these activities and initiatives, and continue to create new opportunities for connection and advancement within our community. As we transition to paid membership, we want you to know that we remain committed to providing our online resources and journal free and accessible to the public.
