    General Support/Organization
The Queer Women of Color Media Arts Project (QWOCMAP) fosters and incubates the filmmaking efforts of a collective of women whose work addresses social justice and arts activism, and fosters the development of new voices in an historically under-recognized, but vitally integral, part of our community. Through the production, exhibition, and distribution of new films, QWOCMAP’s work invests in the fertile creative community of queer women, and cultivates learning and understanding in the greater community. Recognized for its annual film festival, which is offered free, QWOCMAP’s programming also includes no-cost intensive training workshops. Continued investment in QWOCMAP would strengthen its Filmmaker Training Program and leverage broader funding support to strengthen its organizational capacity.
