Description

MAP Fund Program Associate - Job Listing

The MAP Fund seeks a Program Associate who will provide full-time support to the design and execution the annual MAP Fund grant cycle and to the continued development to the organization as a whole.


About the MAP Fund

The MAP Fund invests in artistic production as the critical foundation of imagining — and ultimately creating — a more equitable and vibrant society. MAP supports original live performance projects that embody a spirit of deep inquiry, particularly works created by artists who question, disrupt, complicate, and challenge inherited notions of social and cultural hierarchy across the United States.

 

MAP awards $1 million in grants to 40 new performance projects annually, selected from open-call submissions of approximately 900 proposals. MAP also operates the Scaffolding for Performing Artists (SPA) program, which offers strategic consulting to individual artists self-producing new works.

 

MAP is committed to anti-racism, and does not support cultural appropriation, or oppressive project language, structures, or content. A commitment to intersectional anti-racism and anti-ableism is essential to employment at the MAP Fund, and informs all areas of the organization.
