    The Knight Arts Challenge in South Florida opens in less than a week. And if you’re interested in applying for funding, we hope you will join us for one of our upcoming events where you can learn more about the challenge and get your questions answered.

    For the first time, we’re throwing a Challenge Kickoff Party at 6 p.m., Tuesday, Jan. 27, at Gramps in Wynwood, co-sponsored by the culture calendar INFRACULTURE. Come by for happy hour and meet up with fellow artists, past winners and the people at Knight behind the challenge.

    We are also hosting a series of Community Q&A meetings, where Arts Program Officer Tatiana Hernandez will give tips and insights on how to craft a compelling application. At Knight, we want to help make art general in South Florida – so we are hosting these sessions in neighborhoods from Key West to Fort Lauderdale to touch as many communities as possible. (The schedule is below.)
