MAP GRANT OVERVIEW

MAP invests in artistic production as the critical foundation of imagining—and ultimately co-creating—a more equitable and vibrant society. MAP awards $1 million annually, to up to 45 projects in the range of $10,000–$45,000 per grant.

The grant supports original live performance projects that embody a spirit of deep inquiry, particularly works created by artists who question, disrupt, complicate, and challenge inherited notions of social and cultural hierarchy across the United States.

Funded projects address these concerns through the processes of creating and distributing live performance to the public, and/or through the content and themes of the work itself. MAP is committed to intersectional anti-racism, and does not support cultural appropriation or oppressive project language, structures, or content.

The program pursues its mission by annually welcoming applications for new live performance projects. Each year, MAP hires a different cohort of peer reviewers who recommend the projects they believe most align with MAP’s goals through a rigorous, facilitated review process.

Please read the 2020 Application Guide for more information.

This application will close on November 25, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. ET.
