Say 313.

Detroit, in name, has many titles. The D. Motor City. Motown. Detroit Rock City. And of course, “The 313”, referencing our area code. In July 2014, the City of Detroit turns 313 years old. After executing a great Detroit birthday event in 2013, Forward Arts is leading 10 young professional/next generation organizations in celebrating Detroit across our city over 7 days. We are proud of our city, and Detroit Love will be a positive platform in which Detroit’s assets, communities, businesses, and organizations will be showcased.

July 19th-July 25th | With over 20 events taking place over 7 days, more than 10 Detroit neighborhoods/spaces will be part of the birthday celebrations. Locations, programming details, and other partners will be announced at a later date.


2014 KNIGHT ARTS CHALLENGE
03.03.14

Starting this Monday, you can start to submit ideas for the Knight Arts Challenge. Forward Arts got the opportunity to promote the grant last year, and again this year. If you see us in the streets helping get out the word, give us a holler if you have any questions. But really, the grant is super easy. You'll get it.

It's easy, really.

The contest will open March 10 and run through April 7. Once again, there are just three rules:

  • The idea must be about the arts.
  • The project must take place in or benefit Detroit.
  • Grant recipients must find funds to match Knight’s commitment within a year).

The application only requires applicants do one thing: describe the arts project in 150 words or less. The challenge is open to everyone – artists and artist collectives of all types, businesses, established arts institutions, and any individual who has a great idea for the arts.

For more info, check out KNIGHT ARTS. Some cool Detroit stories there too.
