The MAP FundDeadline: November 25, 2019
The MAP Fund invests in artistic production as the critical foundation of imagining — and ultimately co-creating — a more equitable and vibrant society. MAP 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 supporting new live performance projects.
Amount: A total of $1,000,000 is available to support up to 45 projects with grants ranging $10,000-$45,000.
Eligibility: A tax-exempt, United States-based nonprofit organization must be identified in good faith as the entity that will be responsible for receiving and distributing the grant in the event of an award. The organization must have received nonprofit certification before July 1, 2018 and must fall under one of the two following categories:
- The applicant organization is a registered nonprofit organization that has committed to offering creation or producing support, and/or presentation of the proposed project
- The applicant organization is a registered nonprofit organization that offers fiscal sponsorship only, meaning no intent to develop, produce, or present the proposed project
Note: The application period will open on October 21, 2019.
