Funding Arts Broward awarded $150,000 from the
John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
Funding Arts Broward, Inc. (FAB!) is a non-profit arts organization committed to preserving and cultivating the arts in Broward County, Florida. FAB! was formed in response to the need for private financial support following drastic government budget cuts in the arts. With this grant, FAB will establish the "Knight New Work Awards" which they believe will be a catalyst for Broward County cultural presenters to innovate, to invest in the professional development of their creative personnel, to purchase necessary equipment, to collaborate with guest artists, and more.
This year the Knight Foundation awarded $3.8 million in grants in South Florida as part of the Knight Arts Challenge but only three in Broward; the Art and Culture Center of Hollywood ($25,000), FAB! ($150,000) and William Stewart's Rhythm of Africa Music Program ($25,000). FAB!'s grant was among the largest for this program. This is a testament to the leadership of FAB! and the work they have done in the community.
FAB! is a great organization, with some family ties, that has stepped up to try and fill the gaps created by budget cuts and lack of public moneys for the arts. The problems facing arts organizations are going to have to be solved by passionate people coming together with fresh ideas. FAB! has taken the lead and it is great they are getting the recognition they deserve. GL
