Fund Your Creative Project: Grant Writing for the Visual, Literary & Performing Artist
In this hands-on workshop, held on Sunday, November 6th as part of the Dark & Stormy Beach Weekend, artists and writers learn to take a good idea and transform it into a compelling grant proposal. Discover how to research funding, decode application questions and create a budget that makes your application irresistible. Bring any writing you have about yourself or your work, including artist statement, project descriptions, or reviews, if any. Participants will have time to clarify their ideas and receive moderated feedback from the group and direct coaching from the instructor. Open to both experienced and novice grant writers.
