The MAP Fund is one of the leading sources of funding for contemporary performance in the United States. 

In June 2020, they awarded $1.3 million in grants to 171 performing artists and arts organizations across the country. Awards ranged from $2,500 for semifinalists to $12,500 for finalists. At this workshop, The Field’s Deputy Director Shawn René Graham will break down the program's eligibility requirements, assess your readiness to apply, and share the components of a competitive proposal. 

Shawn René Graham is a freelance writer and dramaturg who has served on many panels including National Endowments for the Arts/Theatre Communications Group Theatre Residency Program for Playwrights, the Massachusetts Cultural Council Artist Grants Panel in Playwriting, the Mark Taper Forum's New Works Festival, and the New York State Council on the Arts. She is currently the resident dramaturg of The American Slavery Project's Unheard Voices, the Literary Director for the Classical Theatre of Harlem’s Future Classics Series and Playwright’s Playground, and founder of All Creative Writes, an artistic assistance service that provides individual artists and performing arts organizations with administrative, fundraising, and writing support.
