The project could entail an exhibition, an event or happening, an exchange of communities/cities/artists, a publication, a class. MAG is open to all applicable and viable project ideas.
The required element is Community involvement – whether it be the MAG community, or Bay Area community at large. The applicant must be a MAG member but does not have to reside in the Bay Area; however, the project must be actuated in the Bay Area by Oct 2013.

A MAG advisor will be assigned to winner to oversee progress of project. Documentation of the project’s process/progress will be expected. The recipient is required to make a presentation to the general membership on their project or their creative process after completion of the project.
