In Part One, we will cover an introduction to grant-writing and fundraising for individual artists and small arts organizations (especially queer, trans, people of color, immigrant, and/or female identified) including dispelling myths, financial anxieties, and cultural socialization that prevents these artists from seeking support. We will review the core components of a standard artist’s grant application including artist statement; narrative; budget; and support materials. We’ll discuss the most efficient ways to identify strategic opportunities for you. You will also get a homework assignment!
In Part Two, each participant will submit an online request for professional development activities through the Center for Cultural Innovation’s Quick Grant. For this session, please arrange to bring a laptop.
