MADE is a re-granting & project incubator program that draws upon the inspiration and power of the network to propose and execute projects that addresses immediate solutions of the day, widely ranging from new social modeling, to practices around life/work balance, to new ventures on system theory,  to innovative ways of building smarter communities. MADE is, at its core, an actionable, flexible forum that drives exploration, prototyping, and knowledge sharing.

.

Selected grant proposals receive up to $1,000 + EAP Networked support to execute the proposed idea.  A project could take many forms, but we want you to think about what could be done by this network, for this network. Challenge us, excite us, and take us somewhere new.

 Applications for MADE 2016 are now closed

Check back November 2017 for next round applications.

EAP is committed to creating space for new ideas to be tested and to grow, most importantly we understand that creating space often means providing financial and administrative support to these projects.

MADE Incubator Project: #DignityInProcess

EAP is a network of Bay Area arts workers and administrators focused on equity, sustainability, and creativity in the arts field. As one of our values, we are interested in integrating arts practices back into the labor and administration of the arts. As such, we are partnering with artist/activist ChE to beta test #DignityInProcess: a pilot for Afro-Indigenous Liberatory Practice (AILP) and an opportunity for the healing tradition of the ring shout to engage a wide audience, while directly collaborating with current justice movements and providing an arts-based cultural equity framework for Bay Area arts administrators. Through this lens, EAP and ChE will host workshops in AILP, present Art Actions in Black-owned and African Diasporic businesses, gather Wisdom Councils, and integrate AILP into EAP’s core programs.
