Speaker: Gigi Rosenberg, author of The Artists' Guide to Grant Writing
In this interactive workshop, artists will learn how to take a good idea and transform it into a compelling and lively grant proposal. Participants will discover how to research funding, decode application questions, and let the grant-writing process focus their career goals. Ms. Rosenberg will demonstrate how to play the matchmaking game with potential funders, enlist a team to help craft a proposal, discern when it's best to continue to build a body of work rather than write a grant proposal, how to follow-up with a funder whether you receive the grant or not, and how to build a budget that will make your applications shine. Participants should bring any writing they have about themselves or their work, including artist statements or project descriptions. Please note that this workshop is designed only for those who have submitted at least one grant application in the past.
