A one-day professional development workshop for individual artists that takes a deep dive into the mysteries of writing a successful arts grant application. Artists from all disciplines and levels of practice are welcome, even if you are not sure where your work fits in. This is a multidisciplinary, multi-platform event designed to support artists in a variety of disciplines to develop the skills and confidence necessary to apply for grants from both private and public funders. Learn where and how to start, ways to frame your work, ideas and artistic vision. Understand how juries work and how to deal effectively with support material. What to do if it’s a win, or if it’s a No. Catch up on the changes at both CC and OAC. This event is perfect for the first timer or those who want to brush up their skills and increase their chances for success.
Grantwriting 2.0 will bring together a panel of experts who have practical knowledge, insight and experience to share with other Peterborough artists (they know how it feels and they have meaningful expertise to share). The event also offers an opportunity for you to discuss a proposal one - on - one with a specialist in your discipline, watch the OAC “how to videos” with your peers, and be selected to take part in a mentorship program that will help you take your next grant application from start to finish. Network, get peer support and dive in!
So, jot down your project ideas or bring a draft of your grant, come talk to folks who know what it’s like. Get your game on - learn how to get that grant and make your work.
