MAP Fund Awards $1.5 Million to Performance Projects

Creative Capital’s MAP Fund has awarded thirty-nine US-based performance projects a total of $1.5 million. The fund is primarily supported by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, with additional support given by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Since 1989, the MAP Fund has issued grants for new and innovative performance works that particularly address issues of racial, ethnic, and sexual diversity. This year, grantees, which range from individual artists to performing art centers, will receive anywhere from $20,000 to $40,000. For more information about the 2014 winners, click here.
