Presented in partnership with Mentoring Artists for Women's Art (MAWA)

In this dynamic, fun, participatory workshop, you will learn how to write a grant for your individual art practice, including how to prepare a budget, résumé, artist statement and project proposal. There will be important discussions about how to best present yourself as an artist and your proposed idea to a panel of unknown assessors: what to do, what not to do and how to select the best possible support materials. As this workshop aims to be as relevant as possible, please come prepared to share a general introduction to your art practice and your project idea with the group. Many of the elements of good grant writing are the same for exhibit/project proposals, so this workshop will be invaluable in helping you prepare for those as well. Get yourself organized and promote your practice! Learn from an experienced grant writer!
