To bring Springboard for the Arts' Community Supported Art program to Knight Foundation's eight communities over the next two years, inspiring local art movements
To support the expansion of this Miami-based mentoring program into four Knight communities: Philadelphia, Detroit, Charlotte and Palm Beach
To elevate and energize community discussion, engagement and excitement by bringing six to eight new Knight artists in residence to McColl Center for Visual Art leading to increased regional and national attention
Charlotte is known as a can-do city that takes on and often solves the thorniest problems. Knight Foundation is committed to informing and engaging communities in their own true interests. So, in Charlotte we are joining with residents and leaders who are interested in innovative and effective ways to engage families, neighborhoods and the broader community in creating a brilliant educational experience for all our students.
Knight also continues to support the arts as tools of engagement, encouraging organizations to identify and test new ways of connecting more residents to the arts.
To help sustain healthy communities in a democracy, we aim to increase the ability of individuals to engage in change.
