Congratulations to all the 2021 Knight Arts Challenge winners!
What is your best idea for the arts in Akron, Detroit or Miami? The 2021 Knight Arts Challenge supports the best ideas for the arts from individual artists and arts organizations in Akron, Detroit and Miami. Building on the innovation and creativity of artists during the pandemic, the two-part Challenge will support artists to create works that connect people to place and each other. Read more about the 2021 Knight Arts Challenge in this blog by Knight’s Adam Ganuza.
As communities reopen, the arts can show us the way forward. Here’s how we’re supporting that momentum.
Knight’s Adam Ganuza shares more about the 2021 Knight Arts Challenge.
As part of the Challenge, Knight will fund ideas from local artists and arts organizations in these cities who are asked to answer this question in 150 words or less: “What is your best idea for the arts in either Akron, Detroit or Miami?”
There were two rules for submissions:
- The idea must be about the arts
- The project must take place in or benefit Akron, Detroit or Miami
From the initial pool of applicants, a group of finalists were chosen in each city to elaborate on their ideas. The winners will share Knight funding to bring their ideas to life.
