To build credibility, artists need peer and public recognition, as well as the capital to produce, promote and distribute their work. Grants can provide both, but are notoriously hard to get. This workshop mini-series focuses on essential grant writing techniques, including crafting a persuasive “pitch”, budgeting, timelines and other handy tips to help you turn out grant applications that are as strong and outstanding as your work.
Cost: $35 for both workshops, also available online
Part 1: The Pitch – Wednesday, January 23: 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM
Starting with an essential grant-writing check-list, and focusing on crafting an informative, context-rich and compelling pitch that “sells” you and your work with clarity and persuasion, this workshop will make you excited to write your next grant application.
Part 2: Budgets & Timelines – Wednesday, January 30: 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM
Focusing on the feasibility components of a grant application – cohesive, well-thought-out budgets and time-lines that adequately reflect the project from a time and money perspective, this session will help you develop a set of best practices for all future grant applications.
