Grants and Producing 101 with Andraea Sartison

Loading map...

Want to make your own work and get paid? This is an introductory workshop to ways to fund your projects and create a sustainable career as an independent artist. The masterclass addresses many money making "schemes" from fundraising to grant writing... and what's the difference between donations and sponsorship anyway? An important, but sometimes dry topic, taught with a sense of humour.
