Finding Funds and Resources for Your Art
Art for Change Gallery
February 17, 2011
Finding Funds and Resources for Your Art was co-presented with Art for Change. The seminar was conducted by Haowen Wang, the Program Manager of Grants & Services at the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council (LMCC). Wang provided a tailored overview for immigrant artists seeking to find grants as well as other resources to support their creative careers. Participants learned how to research and identify different types of grants, determine the right ones for their needs, and develop and bring together the necessary materials for a successful application. Other creative ways of securing resources, which are not necessarily monetary, was also explored.
