MAPS, founded by Samantha Blake Goodman, is dedicated to cultivating the contemporary and traditional arts of the Afro-Latinx and Caribbean diaspora in Los Angeles. Incorporating interdisciplinary approaches rooted in dance, performance, film, photography, music, workshops and panels, our projects consider alternative methods to sharing and exhibiting work which hold community, accessibility, and inclusivity at its core. MAPS offers opportunities for the voices of up and coming artists to be heard, highlighting female and femme identifying, gender non conforming, Black, and/or Latinx artists. Our goal is to welcome an audience of all ages and various cross sections of LA to collectively nurture a safe environment for new perspectives, creativity and community building.
