Opportunity For South Florida Artists

On Feb. 1, the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation launched the second round of the Knight Arts Challenge, a community-wide contest to fund the best art ideas in South Florida. The deadline for applications is 9 a.m. March 2. The Challenge, part of a five-year, $40 million initiative, aims to help transform South Florida by bringing the community together through the arts. Last year, Knight Foundation awarded $8 million to 31 groups – such as sculptors, musicians, prominent institutions and recently formed galleries.

The Knight Foundation is seeking ideas and innovation in the arts from nonprofits, companies and individuals. There are three simple rules:

  1. The idea is about arts.
  2. The project takes place in or benefits South Florida.
  3. You find other funding to match the Knight Foundation grant.
