Renew Media is a not-for-profit organization established in 1990 by the Rockefeller Foundation.

Renew Media fosters independent artistic expression by supporting the creation, dissemination and public awareness of independent media in all forms. Renew Media encourages media artists to redefine, explore and create innovative visions that reflect our diverse culture and helps connect those works to a broad audience.

Creation: We fund media artists through the Media Arts Fellowships.

Dissemination: We support the dissemination of independent media works through innovative programs and through research, education and policy work in these areas.

Public Awareness: We seek to help audiences gain awareness of and access to the media arts by organizing public programs that include screenings, discussions, educational and public use of curated collections of independent media.
