ACWR Art. Work Workshop – Achieving Creative Goals through stepped Grant Writing
This workshop will introduce creative professionals with little to no grant writing experience to municipal, provincial and federal granting agencies and share successful strategies for applying for grants for emerging and mid career artists. This workshop will provide tips and tricks to avoid disqualification and advice on how to make your application stand out in a crowd. Additionally, attendees will gain perspectives on grant writing that exceed single project objectives, and encourage artists to set long term creative goals and achieve those goals through stepped professional outputs paired with stepped grant applications.
