Mapp, 10 Years Anniversary
December 7, 2013 @ 1:00 pm - 11:00 pm| Free
Since 2003, the MAPP, Mission Arts and Performance Project has produced 63 neighborhood pop-up art happenings of intimate spaces, all without ever formalizing into a non-profit organization, seeking funding, nor establishing a formal staff structure. Across these 10 years, the MAPP has featured thousands of artists, helping to cross-pollinate ideas and launch careers of artists engaged in social issues. It is a kind of otherworldly art walk, not centered on commercial corridors but within intimate spaces where the magic of genuine connectivity transpires among people across communities and art forms.
The MAPP stands as a testament to the possibility of horizontal organizing among artists intent on building social fabric within our respective communities, as much to celebrate diversity and creativity as to counter the erosion of these qualities that occurs when development displaces artists and minority communities alike.
Why is this MAPP so Special? This December marks the 10 year anniversary of the Mission Arts & Performance Project (MAPP), a non-commercial multidisciplinary and intercultural arts happening that takes place in garages, living rooms, backyards, studios, and community-minded businesses throughout the Mission District of San Francisco on every even month of the year.
