* MAPP is a FREE event — Join us!*
The MAPP is a homegrown, intercultural, multidisciplinary neighborhood event that takes place the first Saturday every two months in the Mission District. This months’s MAPP features more than 15 venues—garages, cafés, studios, gardens, street corners—which artists transform into makeshift venues for the intimate experience of people and culture. Endeavoring to bridge the cultural divides of our communities, the MAPP gives space and voice to the multiplicity of perspectives and experiences that exist within urban settings.
