Church of the Friendly Ghost and Austin Museum of Digital Art present the New Media Art and Sound Summit (NMASS) from Thursday, June 12th until Saturday, June 14th, 2014. The festival will feature music performances, sound installations, film screenings, and workshops!
Your contribution to this campaign underwrites the production of NMASS, paying for things such as artist travel, accommodation, equipment rentals, sound engineering, and venue costs. Your support is an investment in a creative summit which contributes to the unique cultural identity of our great city! 100% of admissions proceeds are paid to our featured guest artists and performers. NMASS and COTFG are completely volunteer-run. You can support this campaign even if you're not in Austin or can't attend the festival in person!
