One event on February 1, 2023 at 6:30 pm
You know art. We can teach you business.
This two-part mini-series is designed to help artists gain the necessary business know-how to start their ventures on the right foot. It focuses on essential grant-writing techniques, including crafting a persuasive “pitch,” budgeting, timelines, and other handy tips to help you turn out grant applications that are as strong and outstanding as your work. Develop your artistic practice or business strategically in order to see real growth now.
Part 1: The Pitch
Wednesday, February 1: 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM
Your art has potential – now you must represent it on paper in a way that will captivate the reader. In the first part of this series, you will learn how to craft a compelling, context-rich pitch that jumps off the page to effectively illustrate your art project’s true value. Starting with an essential grant-writing checklist, you will understand how to represent your work with clarity and persuasion.
Part 2: Budgets and Timelines
Wednesday, February 8: 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM
All winning grant applications include cohesive, well-thought-out budgets and timelines that accurately illustrate the project from a time and financial perspective. In this session, we will focus on developing a set of best practices for all future grant applications that get results.
