Our Mission:
The New Media Caucus (NMC) is an international non-profit association formed to promote the development and understanding of new media art. We represent and serve: artists, designers, practitioners, historians, theorists, educators, students, and scholars. Recognizing new media art to be inherently interdisciplinary, multimodal, and evolving, we support and advance a wide range of inquiry to catalyze further evolution of the field.

The NMC is committed to extending and sustaining the diversity of our community, board, and membership, to promote an environment of equality, inclusion, and respect for difference. We prioritize inclusion as an ongoing collaborative process of growth that we continually address, both within the Caucus and in our field.

In addition to being an independent arts organization, the New Media Caucus is an Affiliate Society of the College Art Association.

Any member of the New Media Caucus is eligible to make nominations and be nominated to the Board. Self-nominations are encouraged and accepted.

Nominations are submitted via an online form:

If you are not ready to commit to a Board level position, we strongly encourage all New Media Caucus members to get actively involved with standing committees including Events & Exhibitions; Resources; Communications; and Grants, Scholarships & Finance (GSF).
