This week is the last for applications to round 2 of the Knight Arts Challenge.
Open to everyone in Philadelphia, the three-year, $9 million initiative encourages organizations, businesses and individuals to submit 150-word applications for creative proposals.
There are just three rules:
1) The idea must be about the arts. 2) The project must take place in or benefit Philadelphia. 3) The grant recipients must find funds to match Knight’s commitment (within a year).
Thirty-six winners split almost $3 million in last year’s awards. Applications are due by midnight Monday, Oct. 31. If you have questions in the meantime, you can get a real-time answer Thursday from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. form Knight Foundation staffer Dennis Scholl.
