The Knight Arts + Tech Expansion fund provides support for technical capacity-building to arts practitioners (both artists and arts organizations) based in Charlotte and Mecklenburg County. The Fund provides support to arts practitioners seeking to expand their reach and impact through the use of technology. Applicants may request support for ongoing needs, or for discrete projects.

The Knight Arts + Tech Expansion Fund supports work in the following categories:

  • Purchase and installation of hardware and/or software (e.g., licensing of archiving software, installation of livestreaming equipment, purchase of cloud storage)
  • Build-out/permanent infrastructure (e.g., installation of networking equipment, outdoor projections)
  • Staff or contract support (e.g. contract videographer, full-time web developer, social media manager)
  • Website redesign (design and build)
  • Digitization/archiving (digital photography and storage of collections or portfolios)


Funding decisions will be made based on applicants’ demonstrated capacity to use technology to increase the impact of their work, and the potential for positive impact in Charlotte-Mecklenburg County should the proposed work be completed as described.
