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 ArtPlace, a creative place-making initiative that uses investments in the arts and other creative assets to shape the social, physical and economic character of cities, towns and communities across the U.S.
To produce WTF, a contemporary play by Katie Ka Van exploring the second-generation Hmong-American experience
Knight Foundation is pioneering an informed, engaged and highly collaborative approach to transit-oriented development of neighborhoods along the Central Corridor light rail line between Minneapolis and St. Paul.
To prevent the disenfranchisement and displacement that this community experienced 50 years ago with the last major transit project, residents as well as local leaders must engage in new ways. Through our participation in the Central Corridor Funders Collaborative, we will engage with residents, business owners and community leaders to come up with shared solutions during the light rail construction and beyond.
As part of our commitment to informed and engaged communities, Knight is also supporting a limited number of other initiatives including the Saint Paul Public Libraries Mobile Workplace and a small portfolio of arts grants that engage St. Paul audiences in new and innovative ways.
To help sustain healthy communities in a democracy, we aim to increase the ability of individuals to engage in change.
