PEAK Grantmaking

Designing Agile and Equitable Granting Systems

Sponsored by Submittable.

Submittable’s Caitlin Stainken interviewed Lauren Slone, MAP Fund’s director of grants and research, on how MAP Fund has worked to design more agile and equitable systems into its granting process. MAP awards $1 million annually to support innovation and cross-cultural exploration in new works of live performance. With an emphasis on creating application and review structures that have the potential to welcome diverse applicants, we’ll explore MAP’s process, innovations, and lessons learned over its 30 years of grantmaking.
