About the Grant

$25,000 to support I WANT MY MONEY BACK! (MAP 2010), is a new collaborative work with Hot 8 Brass Band, Royce Osborn, and Junebug Productions.

About the Project

I WANT MY MONEY BACK! is infused with the New Orleans vernacular art of performative storytelling - second line dances, brass bands, parades, masking, and spectacle theater that articulates the absurd conditions that resulted from Katrina/Rita. At its heart is the story of oppressed, exploited black New Orleanians who share the experiences of displaced populations around the world. I WANT MY MONEY BACK! will illuminate the benefits of collaborating artistically and organizing around globally recognized Universal Human Rights, particularly the Right of Return to one's homeland.
