Thursday 31 August, 10:00 - 12:30, Online via Zoom
Are you thinking of applying for funding for your practice, project, or a collaboration and don't know where to start? Do you know the basics, but would like to improve your skills? Perhaps you don't know where to even find funds in the first place?
This practical online workshop led by Briana Pegado will take you through the process of writing a successful funding application. It aims to cover all aspects of structuring your application and offer top tips and advice to ensure that your submissions have every chance of success. The workshop will focus on:
How to talk about yourself and your practice using a personal values compass
How to write a good funding application based on a strong proposal
How to think about evaluating and monitoring your impact as an artist
How to budget, including how to calculate in-kind costs
Resources you can use to guide you
A very quick intro to different types of funding and fundraising
This 2.5 hour Zoom workshop will involve some practical writing exercises, so bring along something to write or type with. There will also be Q+A, where we will be encouraging questions and discussion from participants. There may be an opportunity for you to discuss your work with a partner in virtual breakout rooms, but if you would prefer not to work 1:1, Briana can adapt the workshop to the collective's needs.
