The Digital Discovery Festival Spring/Summer 2020 is made possible by a private, anonymous, restricted grant.

Live@NationalSawdust is made possible by a growing list of generous donors including: Sally and Dan Breen, Theodore Cornwell, Richard D’Avino, Kevin Dolan, Joan and Peter Faber, Mimi and Steve Houston, Joanne Hubschman, Catriona Mordant AM and Simon Mordant AM, Diana and Jonathan Rose, John Rutherford, Kris Sebastian and Alberto Cribiore, Daisy M. Soros, David Stein, Jill and Bill Steinberg, James Wolcott, Karen Wong, the Booth Ferris Foundation, and with previous capital support from the City of New York through the New York City Council, the Office of the Brooklyn Borough President, and the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs. Live@NationalSawdust is co-curated by Paola Prestini and Nicole Merritt.

Please consider supporting these artists directly during this extraordinarily difficult time, especially challenging for those who make a living through freelance work — links to their music are included under each video.
