Miami on Stage Knight New Works
Via FUNDarte, Inc.
To strengthen the local performing arts by providing seed funding for new works for local companies and artists.
FUNDarte will use Knight Foundation funding to strengthen the performing arts scene by commissioning three original contemporary performance works by Miami-based artist companies. As an outgrowth of FUNDarte’s three-year-old Miami on Stage series, which presents completed full-length works by local artists, the Knight New Works component will select three projects to fully produce, present and tour to two additional locations in greater Miami. FUNDarte will also offer managerial and logistical support to the artist-driven works.
FUNDarte is a multidisciplinary nonprofit dedicated to producing, presenting and promoting music, theater, dance, film and visual arts that speak to Miami’s diverse cultures, with a special emphasis on artists from Latin America, the Caribbean and Spain. FUNDarte works to nurture emerging artists and those with little or no exposure to South Florida audiences, to facilitate intercultural and international exchanges, and to provide local audiences and artists with educational opportunities that expand their creative, critical and social perspectives.
