NYFA's mission starts with individual artists in the visual, media, performing and literary arts.
NYFA provides online access to the most comprehensive list of information resources for artists in the nation, opening doors to the widest range of financial, educational, technological, and institutional opportunities available.
A vital resource for advertisers and job seekers alike, NYFA Classifieds is one of the best known listing services for opportunities in the arts — from job and internship listings to open calls for artists and studio spaces. The site lists hundreds of new jobs and opportunities every day, and is a hallmark of NYFA's website.
NYFA Source is the nation’s largest online arts database, providing over 12,000 resources and opportunities for artists in all disciplines. The database is continuously updated, fully searchable, and accompanied by individualized advice and support through the NYFA Source Hotline, firstname.lastname@example.org | (800) 232-2789 (Mon-Fri, 3-5pm EST).
BUSINESS OF ART
From mythbusting explanations of disaster insurance to step-by-step guides to attaining financial security, NYFA's Business of Art directory offers a wealth of helpful information and guidance on practical matters necessary for artists to consider. Entries are arranged by topic and unrestricted by medium, featuring text, infographics, podcasts, video, and more.
A monthly Artist Professional Development Day on Twitter every third Wednesday of the month. Inspired by the NYFA Source Hotline, #ArtistHotline is an initiative dedicated to creating an ongoing online conversation around the professional side of artistic practice.
