Your contribution will supports artists who are realizing works that interrogate presumptive cultural norms, challenge entrenched ideologies, and remind us over and over again of our shared humanity. 

Since 1988, MAP has been central to the growth of the field as one of few organizations providing critical funding for the production of new work. MAP catalyzes cross-cultural innovation in new works of live performance and improves conditions for artists working in a rapidly shifting arts economy through collaborative and responsive methods. 

THE FUND: 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. 

SPA PROGRAM: MAP’s Scaffolding for Practicing Artists (SPA) envisions a new method of providing support to independent artists and ensembles by considering dramatically shifting producing structures in the national arts sector over the past decade.
