To gain 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.
Part 1: The Pitch - Wednesday, January 22: 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM
Your art has potential - now you must represent it on paper in a way that will captivate the reader. In the first part of this series, you will learn how to craft a compelling, context-rich pitch that jumps off the page to effectively illustrate your art project’s true value. Starting with an essential grant-writing check-list, you will understand how to represent your work with clarity and persuasion.
Part 2: Budgets & Timelines - Wednesday, January 29: 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM
All winning grant applications include cohesive, well-thought-out budgets and timelines that adequately reflect the project from a time and money perspective. In this session, we will focus on helping you develop a set of best practices for all future grant applications.
