* 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.
This next MAPP on April 6th is dedicated to PachaMama: Pachamama is a goddess revered by the indigenous people of the Andes. PachaMama is often translated as “Mother Earth” but to be more accurate In Aymara and Quechua, Mama translates to mother and Pacha translates to world, land, universe or cosmos.
This MAPP is also dedicated to Memory of Carlos Ramirez.Carlos was an educator, poet, singer, dancer and a tireless envoy of inspiration, encouragement and boundless joy. He was and is a vital part of the MAPP and Mission community. We love you Carlitos.
