Adam Ganuza has a cool job. As Arts Program Officer with Knight Foundation, he travels to different cities meeting people and hearing about their ideas for improving the arts. And during his current visit to Akron, he’s informing residents about the Knight Arts Challenge, where a possible $1 million is up for grabs to fund arts-based project ideas. The challenge grant is open to anyone in Akron: nonprofits, businesses, groups or individuals. Adam talks about his background as a previous Knight Arts grantee in Miami and his appreciation of the arts and love of community. He'll be at a number of events this week to help answer questions about the Knight Arts Challenge, including coffee shop hours and evening presentations. Applications are open through April 28, and for the first round of applications, all you need to provide is a 150-word description of your project idea. For more info, visit www.knightarts.org.
