The MAP Fund is one of the leading sources of funding for contemporary performance in the United States. Each year, they award $1,000,000 to up to 40 projects across the country. Grants range from $10,000 to $45,000 per project. If you are looking to throw your hat in the ring this year, come to The Field’s MAP Fund Toolbox session and learn about this competitive application process. The Field’s Deputy Director Shawn René Graham will walk you through the program's eligibility requirements, your readiness to apply, and the components of the application.
