As a way to recruit ideas from South Floridaâ€™s many neighborhoods, Knight Foundation will host a series of Community Q&A sessions from Marathon to Fort Lauderdale. The events, taking place Feb. 3-11, will offer tips on preparing applications, information on the challenge timelines, and a chance to talk to past winners on what gave their submissions an edge. The schedule is below.
â€œIn recent years, weâ€™ve seen a growing number of great ideas from our many neighborhoodsâ€”ideas that are bringing the arts into peopleâ€™s everyday lives,â€ said Dennis Scholl, Knight Foundationâ€™s vice president for arts. â€œWe want to help ensure that there is art wherever you go in South Florida.â€
The Community Q&As will be cohosted by: Bas Fisher Invitational, Cannonball, Miami Light Project, Sweat Records, WPBT2, Miami-Dade Department of Cultural Affairs, ArtSouth, M Ensemble, Black Archives History and Research Foundation, Opa-locka Community Development Corp., Little Haiti Cultural Center, Miramar Cultural Trust, Broward Cultural Council, Art & Culture Center of Hollywood, Florida Keys Council of the Arts, and Florida International Universityâ€™s music, art, art history and creative writing departments.
