Synth Library NYC is a vital resource for New Yorkers to gain free access to music technology. Through our lending library of electronic instruments, workshops and synth activations, we are helping people get hands-on experience with expensive musical equipment and educational opportunities to build their skills. Amazingly, we do all this on 100% volunteer effort!
Synth Library NYC has grown dramatically since its launch in 2021. Over 600 people now use our library, plus an additional 400+ participate in our synth activations and workshops each year. With this expanded reach, we really need help to meet our expenses. Plus, we've got our eyes on the future and have big plans for new programming in 2024.
Here is what your funds will help us do in 2024:
Pay for SLNYC's fixed annual costs = $6,360
- Cables, cases, batteries, repairs for instruments
- Internet platform annual fees
- Rent at our Hex House space
Help us launch our 2024 Expansion Plan = $7,140
- Launch residency program to increase capacity and reach more people
- Expand educational workshops
- Onboard 250 new library users
- Much needed equipment upgrades (new synths + storage lockers)
Help Synth Library NYC soar in 2024!
