Welcome

The MAP Fund supports the development and production of original live performance projects that embody a spirit of deep inquiry, particularly those that question, disrupt, and complicate notions of social and cultural hierarchies. MAP was originally established in 1988 by The Rockefeller Foundation and became an independent organization in 2016. MAP has provided over $33 million in support to more than 1,000 projects and thousands of artists within them over the past 33 years.

Additional support provided by Booth Ferris Foundation, Howard Gilman Foundation, Jerome Foundation, Mertz Gilmore Foundation, The Nathan Cummings Foundation, The National Endowment for the Arts, New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, Seidman Family Foundation, Surdna Foundation, and individual donors.
