Grant Opportunity from MAP

Our current MALS and IDS students may be interested in pursuing an upcoming grant opportunity from MAP (Multi-Arts Production Funds).

MAP works to build a thriving, risk-welcoming contemporary performance field by providing project-specific funding to playwrights, choreographers, directors, composers and performers experimenting in any performance tradition or discipline.  MAP supports only projects that contain a live performance.

MAP funds up to 40 grants per annual cycle, ranging from $10,000 to $45,000. The average award amount is $25,000.  MAP supports most direct costs related to the conception, creation and premiere of a new work. These include but are not limited to commissioning fees and artists’ salaries, research costs, rehearsal and workshop expenses, promotion, and audience outreach and production costs up to and including the premiere run of the work.
