Through playmaking, The Manton Avenue Project nurtures an expanding sense of possibility by building each child's capacity for personal and academic success.

Our mission is to nurture the unique potential of the young people of Providence's Olneyville, one of the city's lowest income neighborhoods. We do so by unleashing their creative voices and uniting them with professional artists to create original theater. 

Our programs are tuition-free for every young playwright. We rely on the support of friends like you!

And we invite you to join our MAP Makers Guild. As a MAP Maker, you make a place where children and actors can come together and turn a thought into a play and live performance. You make sure students see their words, their ideas, and their dreams come to life.

Become a MAP Maker withg a recurring monthly donation of any amount. Your gift ensures that MAP will always provide students with a place to explore the creative world. Just click 'Donate' and select the monthly option. We thank you!
