In a submission titled "Art & Architecture: Changing our Cities Through Our Youth," UAC Co-Founder Tiffany Brown pitched a new UAC initiative called 400 Forward. This idea was selected as one of the winners for the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation's Knight Arts Challenge.
The programs, support, and multi-level scholarships to be provided by 400 FORWARD aims to position Detroit's youth to realize their talents in STEAM, and grow the presence of African American women in the profession of architecture (currently less than .3%) through the incorporation of artistic excellence.
