Part I: Grant Writing 101 with Daniella Sanader

Offering an overview of the funding landscape, this workshop will highlight how grants can support your art practice and projects, how to prepare and manage your time, and where to find key funding opportunities. We’ll also review best practices for budgets and support material and read through a successful grant application to explore useful writing tips you can use in your own applications.

This workshop will be hosted as a Zoom webinar, with a short mid-session break and an opportunity to ask questions at the end.

Part II: Guided Peer Review: Project Proposals

In this facilitated session, you will be paired with another artist to exchange project proposals and provide mutual support through questions and suggestions. We will provide structure and advice for the peer review that will guide your 1:1 breakout rooms and Daniella Sanader will join the call at the end to address any additional questions.

Each participant should come prepared with ONE of the following:

Option A: If you are preparing to apply for a grant and already have a project proposal prepared, bring that draft text for review. The text should be no longer than 500 words.

Option B: If you don’t currently have a grant in mind, you can prepare a hypothetical project proposal using the following prompt: Describe your project. Explain the inspiration for your project or why you wish to undertake it at this time and how this project will contribute to your artistic development. The text should be no longer than 500 words.

Option C: If you recently applied for a grant, but were unsuccessful, you can bring your project proposal from that application. You may have an opportunity to reapply or submit the project for consideration in another grant application. The text should be no longer than 500 words.
