Wave Farm is a non-profit arts organization driven by experimentation with broadcast media and the airwaves. Our programs—Transmission Arts, WGXC-FM, and Media Arts Grants—provide access to transmission technologies and support artists and organizations that engage with media as an art form.
Transmission Arts programs support artists who engage the transmission spectrum, on the airwaves and through public events. The Wave Farm Artist Residency Program is an international visiting artist program. The Transmission Arts Archive presents a living genealogy of artists’ experiments with broadcast media and the airwaves. Wave Farm Radio is a continuous online radio feed and site-specific broadcast on 1620-AM.
Wave Farm’s WGXC 90.7-FM is a creative community radio station based in New York’s Greene and Columbia counties. Hands-on access and participation activate WGXC as a public platform for information, experimentation, and engagement.
Wave Farm’s Media Arts Grants program includes fiscal sponsorship as well as the New York State Council on the Arts in Partnership with Wave Farm: Media Arts Assistance Fund (MAAF) and New York Media Arts Map, which support electronic media and film organizations, as well as individual artists, in all regions of New York State through a regrant from the NYSCA Electronic Media and Film program.
