MAPP: Mission Arts & Performance Project
The Mission Arts & Performance Project is a bi-monthly collaboration among visual artists, musicians, poets and performers. MAPP puts art and performance on the street level by using alternative spaces such as private garages, basements and studios. It's a block party of the arts for inspiring in ourselves and others the desire for a creative existence and an ever-widening experience of life.

By transforming garages and backyards into mini-galleries, MAPP shows how ordinary spaces can be made extra-ordinary, while at the same time bringing people together to share in a diverse experience of fine art and performance. The garages, as they are unpretentious and open to the street, pose the possibility of exposing the arts to people who might not otherwise enter a gallery or theater. This process helps transport art from the margins of our communities to places of greater visibility where it can be understood as a vibrant and vital force necessary to the health of our society. It is our hope that local residents and others attending the MAPP will be inspired to seek expression of their own experiences through creative means and join in sharing what they have discovered in MAPP events to come.
