Here we go! The second year of the Knight Arts Challenge Philadelphia launched today, and we’re ready to hear your best ideas for the city’s vibrant arts scene! Applications are now being accepted right here through Oct. 31.
We believe the arts can engage and enrich communities and that your ideas can make an impact. That’s why the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation is investing $9 million in innovative arts ideas. To date, 36 ideas have been awarded $2.7 million.
What can these ideas look like? The possibilities are endless. No idea is too large or too small, as long as it follows three basic rules:
- Your idea is about the arts.
- Your project takes place in or benefits Philadelphia.
- You find other funding to match the Knight Foundation grant (within a year).
Over the course of the next four weeks, we’ll be counting down to the deadline, posting a series of tips and answers to common questions, and showcasing some of last year’s amazing winners to get you inspired. We hope you'll take advantage and follow along right here.
We look forward to another year of great ideas!
