This week: Shame on us, we are still posting audio from Miami 2013! This week we talk to Tatiana Hernandez of the Knight Foundation.

Tatiana Hernandez joined Knight Foundation in 2011.

She leads the Knight Arts Challenge, Knight’s open contest for discovering the best arts ideas in Miami, Detroit, Philadelphia and St. Paul. Through her work, she manages a portfolio of over 350 grantees, totaling nearly $100 million in investments.

Hernandez serves on the boards of the National Association of Latino Arts and Cultures and Machine Project, an experimental artist space in Los Angeles. She was named a 2014 Marshall Memorial Fellow, a program of the German Marshall Fund.

Before coming to Knight Foundation, Hernandez worked on issues in public education, most recently as the development director at Green Dot Public Schools where she oversaw $15 million per year in funding and was responsible for over $2 million in new support. Prior to her work in education, she served as the deputy director of programs for Best Buddies International, a Miami-based nonprofit that builds one-to-one friendship opportunities for people with intellectual disabilities.

Hernandez has written and spoken on the importance of new organizational models, equity in grantmaking and innovation in the arts.

Yes. It is true! We rocked Miami this year! It was an epic good time… Lives were changed. Bad decisions were made, but we all survived! Three cheers for the art carnival that is the Miami Basel weekend.

Dana has already done a great job of sharing the gonzo good time that is Miami and you yourself will get a chance to hear what Bad at Sports did with Cannonball and PULSE, but probably not till February.  In the mean time you will have to be contented with the knowledge that we made 6 gig posters with 6 incredible artists, we rocked the local air waves at 91.1 fm, knocked out 14 interviews over 4 days, and partied like rock stars.

Thanks go out to…

Cannonball and PULSE for inviting us.

Sure. 91.1 fm seems like a strange band width but we will never forget, you shouldn’t either.
