Misnomer Receives Awards

Misnomer is honored to have recently received two major grants for our AEP initiative.


We just received a New York City Cultural Innovation Award from the Rockefeller Foundation, which celebrates the diversity, imagination, and energy that make the city a global cultural leader. This will provide Misnomer with $150,000 over the next two years.

In October, we were one of ten organizations awarded a Leading for the Future grant through the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and the Nonprofit Finance Fund. Over the next five years, this initiative will provide Misnomer with resources to launch our Audience Engage Platform (AEP), an online system that serves to build and maintain meaningful interactions between artists and audiences.
