2017 Grantees: Geography

The MAP Fund is a national grant program, meaning our funding supports projects based all across the USA. This year, we’re proud to support 40 projects! Here’s a snapshot of projects taking place in different regions of the country:

LILIʻU: Tribute to a Queen | Honolulu, HI

LILIʻU: Tribute to a Queen commemorates Queen Liliʻuokalani, Hawaiʻi’s last Queen, and her historic artful acts of resistance. This free public performance will take place at ʻIolani Palace — the only royal residence in the United States — and merges Native Hawaiian and Western art traditions of music, dance, and theatre.

Terence Blanchard’s OUR VOICES: DEMOCRACY RE:visited is a new composition inspired by the Voting Rights Act of 1965. This multi-movement work will use music to reflect the conditions, events and individuals that have produced political change and impacted public policy in the USA.

GROUNDWORKS, created by Rulan Tangen / Dancing Earth, is a daylong, multidisciplinary mobile performance art installation. This project will disrupt colonization practices to ritually re-indigenize stolen land, foregrounding Indigenous original presence and raising consciousness around colonization, accountability, and conquest.

Remnant | New York, NY

Last year, Theater Mitu’s company of artists were sent on a series of research trips to conduct personal interviews throughout the Middle East and United States.
