The Mapping Artistic Activism Project (MAAP) is a digital archive of individuals, collectives, and organizations engaged in the emerging field of artistic activism in different regions worldwide.

This archive will identify connections between actors across territories and detail the challenges practitioners face as described by themselves. MAAP will allow us to understand the ecosystem of artistic activism and the main tendencies defining its growth. 

MAAP’s end product will be a public-facing, easy-to-use website that graphically “maps” the field of artistic activism across the globe yet allows the user to drill down to explore different practitioners and organizations in detail.

Using original data gathered by a network of international researchers and self-generated by practitioners worldwide, this platform will be a resource for researchers, practitioners, educators, supporters, and funders looking to understand and strengthen the practice of and knowledge about artistic activism worldwide.
