The MAP Fund is founded on the principle that experimentation drives human progress, no less in art than in science or medicine. MAP supports artists, ensembles, producers and presenters whose work in the disciplines of contemporary performance embodies this spirit of exploration and deep inquiry. MAP is particularly interested in supporting work that examines notions of cultural difference or “the other,” be that in class, gender, generation, race, religion, sexual orientation or other aspects of diversity.
MAP Open Apps has a searchable public database containing summarized information from hundreds of MAP Fund applications received each year. MAP Open Apps allows you to search applications by region, discipline, artist name or key word. Searches will reveal each proposal’s project summary, lead artists associated with the work, and links for more information about the project or the artists involved. In addition, you can click through to the data charts and see aggregated information about MAP applications going back as far as 2006.
