Outdoor Theatre

Carrie Morris Art Production
Detroit, Michigan

Carrie Morris Arts Production (CMAP) creates and supports performance art and artistic exploration in a way that is inclusive, intimate, and community-centered. Since 2012, they’ve provided opportunities for artists who are typically underrepresented in the arts community and support artists who may not have access to other modes of funding. They strive to include residents in the revitalization of their own neighborhood and involve local community groups, neighbors, and non-arts-based organizations in the creation of their performances. CMAP will use their Working with Lots grant to install the Mounds of Fun Lot Design. The design installation is part of CMAP’s larger plan to establish an outdoor amphitheater, welcoming public green space, and children’s playscape across 12 vacant lots that will serve the West Campau/Banglatown neighborhood.  More about this project >
