THE KNIGHT ARTS CHALLENGE OFFERING MILLIONS OF DOLLARS FOR TRANSFORMATIVE VISION

The Knight Arts Challenge is offering up millions of dollars to winners who have a vision to enrich Detroit.

The Knight Arts Challenge Detroit is a $9 million initiative to draw the best and most innovative ideas out of local organizations and individuals seeking to engage and enrich the community through the arts. Whether you’re an independent artist, business, established arts institution, organization or individual – we want to hear from you.”

The challenge invites applicants to come up with ideas to transform the City of Detroit through the arts.

There are three rules for the Knight Arts Challenge:

1) The idea must be about the arts.

2) The project must take place in Detroit or benefit the city.

3) The grant recipients must find funds to match the Knight Foundation’s commitment within a year.

Participants can apply until April 22.

From their website:

You will have approximately one year from the time you receive the grant to match our funding.  If it is a multi-year project, you will have about a year to match each year’s grant amount. Finalists for the challenge will be announced in late spring/early summer 2013, and those projects will be asked to submit a more detailed proposal. Winners will be announced in the fall.”

The initial, two-question, 150-word applications are accepted at KnightArts.org during an annual application period.
