Congratulations to the 44 winning ideas in the Knight Arts Challenge Miami, announced Nov. 28, 2016!

You’re here because, like us, you believe the arts are the highest form of human expression. They describe beauty, speak to our soul, engage and enrage. They celebrate our community’s diversity and etch our shared experience. The arts inspire. The Knight Arts Challenge is a South Florida-based initiative to draw the best and most innovative ideas out of local organizations and individuals seeking to transform the community through the arts. If you have a great idea in the arts, let us know.

There are three simple rules:

  1. The idea is about arts.
  2. The project takes place in or benefits South Florida.
  3. You find other funding to match the Knight Foundation grant.
