Programs

Want to start something creative in your school, neighborhood, or village? We offer specialized arts based training programs according to your community’s interests and needs. Here are some examples:

 The Mentored Playwriting Workshops

A group of young people, each paired with a mentor actor/writer, participates in a progressive series of intensive playwriting workshops.

Professionally Staged Presentations

The production of a staged reading series of the young playwright’s work, where the young person plays an active, central role. These dramatic presentations are often seen by hundreds of their peers and adults.

School and youth organization creative workshops

Theatre workshops often provided along with the  Professionally Staged Presentations to give opportunities for more youth to experience the magic of the creative process.   

Teacher and Mentor arts based literacy training

Engaging teachers and youth program directors in creative training methods and mentor orientations.

Cultural MAPPing

A program for adults designed to explore personal and cultural identities in a creative environment.

MAPP enters its new era!

…meanwhile MAPP enters its 2nd week of a new era… I know I started this blog in the middle of a sentence, but that’s where we are.. in the middle!

“In the middle of what” you ask? (Thanks for asking!)

In the middle of a great adventure… that started over 20 years ago and will hopefully go on for at least 20 more… the new era marks the dawn of a bigger conversation, a float down a river of consciousness that has brought so many people together. Now we need to talk about it folks! We need to draw out the stories, the experiences, the drama, so we can build a bigger tribe and a better world! … I’m all in!
