Artists U grantwriting workshop moves online
Still happening. Still free.
Register ASAP; it’s this Friday.
You heard about it on The Hub last month. A lot’s happened since. Though many things are postponing or canceling, our partner organization is still presenting this invaluable resource for artists. Online. Register today. Made possible by a grant from the South Carolina Arts Commission.
Based on 20 years of grant writing and art making, Artists U South Carolina’s Andrew Simonet is set to introduce artists to principles for writing simple, clear grants. You’ll read some short proposals and act as a panel, scoring and discussing them.
No bull, no fancy PowerPoints, just real-world tools for artists who write (or want to write) grants.
I didn’t sign up to be a grantwriter. I wanted to be a choreographer. I discovered that, to make my work, I needed to find support. So I embarked on a painful learning process of trial and error, making every possible grant writing mistake. Eventually, I secured grants from funders like Creative Capital, The Pew Charitable Trusts, and The Rockefeller Foundation, and residencies from Yaddo, The Studios of Key West, and Ucross.
I want to share with you everything I’ve learned. Based on 20 years of grant writing and art making, I will introduce artists to principles for writing simple, clear grants.
