Pan Left Awarded MAP Fund Grant
The MAP Fund, a program of Creative Capital supported by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, announced its 2011 grants on May 12th. And we are happy to say that Pan Left was awarded a grant for Bus Stop Dreaming, a collaborative performance and video work on the ongoing immigration crisis in Tucson headed by artists Denise Uyehara and Jason M. Aragón. The piece was one of forty selected for funding this year, out of more than 800 submissions.
Ben Cameron, Program Director for the Arts at the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation said, “The MAP Fund has a long track record of support for the nation’s most innovative and insightful performing artists. This year’s roster of grantees is an exciting addition to that legacy. We look forward to the work they will produce, and are honored to support their efforts through MAP.”
The MAP Fund is the second largest annual open submission grant for contemporary performance in the United States in both applications reviewed and dollars awarded. Since 1989, the Fund has disbursed more than $23 million to upwards of 900 performing arts projects.
