Members receive discounts on Creative Manitoba courses, classes and workshops.
10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Presented in partnership with MAWA.
Price: $30 for MAWA or Creative Manitoba members / $55 for non-members
In this dynamic, fun and participatory workshop, you will learn how to write a grant for your individual art practice, including how to prepare a budget, résumé, artist statement and project proposal. There will be important discussions about ways to best present yourself and your idea to a panel of unknown assessors: what to do, what not to do and how to select the best possible support materials. As this workshop aims to be as relevant as possible, please come prepared to share a general introduction to your art practice and your project idea with the group. Many of the elements of good grant writing are the same for exhibit/project proposals, so this workshop will be invaluable in helping you prepare for these as well. Get yourself organized and promote your practice!
