Seven of Detroit's cultural institutions will receive support from Knight Foundation as part of its newly announced $19.25 investment in the city's cultural community.
"Bringing new energy to the artists driving the future of Detroit" on Knight Blog
I’m in Detroit tonight, excited to announce $19.25 million in support for the local arts. Since we started funding cultural projects in the city three years ago, we’ve been impressed by how artists, creatives and entrepreneurs are driving the future of the city. We want to amplify that, and bring new energy to the community.
As you’ll see below, Knight is investing in seven institutions that, despite recent economic challenges, continue to innovate and pursue forward thinking strategies for engaging audiences.
Those investments are only the beginning, though. We’re also excited to bring the Knight Arts Challenge to Detroit. Starting in March, we’ll be asking everybody, and we mean everybody, for their innovative ideas for engaging and enriching Detroit through the arts.
Find out more in today’s news release, below.
And Detroit, get ready to give us your best ideas in the arts.
