MAPP: Mission Arts & Performance Project
Saturday, August 5 @ 7:00PM

Launched in 2003, the Mission Arts & Performance Project (MAPP) is a homegrown bi-monthly, multidisciplinary, intercultural happening that takes place in the Mission District of San Francisco. On the first Saturday of every even month of the year, the MAPP transforms ordinary spaces, such as private garages, gardens, living rooms, studios, street corners, and small businesses into pop-up performance and exhibition sites for a day/night of intimate-scale artistic and cultural exchange among a kaleidoscope of individuals and communities.

The August 5th edition of MAPP highlights the music of the six countries on Donald Trump’s travel ban: Iran, Syria, Libya, Sudan, Yemen, and Somalia.
