MAP Fund invites applications for 2024 grant cycle

The MAP Fund invests in performing artists and their work as the critical foundation of imagining and co-creating a more equitable and vibrant society.

Through its grant program, the organization aims to support the creation of new live performance projects that will be experienced by communities throughout what is now known as the United States, including its territories and Indigenous tribal nations within. In 2024, it will provide grants to more than 90 new live performance projects. Dance, theater, and music projects are welcomed, as well as multidisciplinary and experimental projects that may be difficult to categorize but are clearly intended to result in new live performance work.

Applications are encouraged from artists whose performance making is intended to be—or is coded by the dominant culture as—radical, bold, experimental, and risky in its design, execution, and community resonance. Each grantee will receive a $25,000 grant for the creation and development of a new live performance project, a $5,000 unrestricted general operating grant, and a $1,000 microgrant to redistribute to another artist in their community.

Artists will be responsible for choosing a U.S.-based grant custodian, which can be an individual with an SSN or ITIN, or an entity with one of these incorporation structures: 501(c)(3), LLC, or S-Corps.

For complete program guidelines and application instructions, see the MAP Fund website.

Deadline: December 19, 2023 at 5:00 p.m. ET
