The Port: Knight Arts Challenge wants your ideas for South Florida arts

Help spread art throughout South Florida with the Knight Arts Challenge. 

The challenge has just one goal: art, everywhere – whether its an artist lecture series in Miramar or chamber choir music in Cutler Bay. In a region as diverse as ours, Knight Foundation sees the arts as a way to bring people together, to create the experiences that build great communities.

To solicit the best ideas the Knight Foundation will be traveling around South Florida – from Marathon to Ft. Lauderdale – doing a series of Community Q and A sessions. Knight staff will be giving tips on how to craft an application, talking about the challenge timeline, and anything else that’s on people’s minds.

There are just three rules to the challenge. Your idea must be about art, take place in or benefit South Florida, and selected projects must find funding to match Knight’s grant.

Applying is easy – it only takes about 150 words. The deadline is Feb. 24, 2014.
