To support the production of "Our Stories, Our Lives: The African American Experience", a performance that will provide much needed opportunities for local African American actors and bring a more diverse audience to Theatre Macon's community
For a planning grant to determine the feasibility of establishing a Journalism Collaborative between Mercer University, The Telegraph and Georgia Public Broadcasting
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
Our Macon strategy is two-fold:
1. To build the urban core and create a vibrant community in the three-square-mile area from Mercer University through historic downtown.
2. To connect people through information and technology so they can make informed decisions and act upon those decisions with confidence.
We work to create a sense of place and belonging in College Hill. We enhance news and information exchange through the Center for Collaborative Journalism. We help people tap into the power of the Internet through Connect2Compete.
Knight is committed to leading and working with others to create informed and engaged communities — and Knight is committed to Macon.
To help sustain healthy communities in a democracy, we aim to increase the ability of individuals to engage in change.
