Donate to Squeaky Wheel for 2024
November 20, 2023– January 1, 2024
Squeaky Wheel Film & Media Arts Center has much to celebrate this year! Please support us as we continue our work fostering creativity and expression in media arts. Your donation will have a critical impact on our mission in 2024.
In the coming year, you can look forward to innovative exhibitions from Western New York artists at Squeaky Wheel. Jason Livingstonʼs “In the Sunʼs Absence” will contrast the natural phenomenon of the April Eclipse with our fossil fuel economy. Through February 10, Jordan Lord’s solo exhibition “The Voice of Democracy,” which analyzes the politics of voice and accent across disability, race, class and gender, will be on view.
Our successful international artist residency program will welcome a new group of boundary-pushing media artists, who will pursue their creative projects in Buffalo, and also offer interactive workshops to the community. Squeaky Wheelʼs youth education programs continue to engage new communities.
Digital Art & Technology Access (DATA), our newest media arts and technology program, is designed for neurodiverse youth, and has been enthusiastically received. We prioritize providing access to equipment and technology to youth throughout Western New York through long standing programs like Tech Arts for Girls and West Side Studios, which collaborates with the immigrant community. Adult education will build from our recent sellout multiweek class in DaVinci Resolve editing software.
As we complete the celebration of the 20th Anniversary of our Animation Fest with an exhibition in our gallery and events at the North Park Theater and The AKG in 2023, we are also approaching the 1st anniversary in our new home in Tri-Main Center. We are excited to announce that we will begin a dramatic space renovation project in 2024.
You can help Squeaky Wheel further this important work in 2023.
Thank you for your support,
President, Board of Directors
