Knight New Work 2022 is an open call for the creation of new works by arts practitioners of all genres that incorporate technology into their practice to create, disseminate and enhance the way art is experienced.

The open call will provide a total of $500,000 in support of new works by a select group of winners, and will run from July 18 to August 29. It is open to individual artists, collectives and arts organizations that are based in or who have direct connection to Miami or South Florida. All works must premiere in South Florida.

All applicants must provide letter(s) of support from South Florida-based presenting partner(s) for the premiere of the new work.

Arts organizations with an operating budget upwards of $500,000 are required to match the amount of their request dollar to dollar, and need to provide letters of support from other funders.

Winners have the option to seek additional advice on their project with a Knight New Work advisor as they develop their proposed work.

Winners will participate in a mid-development review session. This will serve as a checkpoint for second disbursement of funds toward the premiere of the work in Spring 2024.

The proposed work concept must:

  • Incorporate technology into the creation and/or dissemination of the work
  • Be new (i.e. not yet premiered)
  • Must have a letter of support from the premiering partner(s).
