In this dynamic, fun and 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 ways to best present yourself and your 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 these as well. Get yourself organized and promote your practice!

Yvette Cenerini is a francophone visual artist working in photomontage and painting. She is a past MAWA board member, a current Arts AccessAbility Network Manitoba board member and Board Chair of La Maison des artistes visuels francophones. Cenerini is a recipient of Manitoba Arts Council and Winnipeg Arts Council grants. As an experienced peer assessor at all three levels of government-funded arts councils, a participant in professional exhibition selection committees and a grant application assistance consultant for artists with disabilities, she is able to approach grant writing from many perspectives even though writing grants is NOT her favourite thing to do!
