Free grantwriting workshop and book talk for artists

Andrew Simonet from Artists U will be in Charleston for the Alliance of Artist Communities conference, and he’s offering free events for artists:

Tuesday October 21, 6-9 p.m. Grant Writing for Artists
The Halsey Institute, 161 Calhoun St. Charleston SC 29424
From Andrew: 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. I secured grants from funders like Creative Capital, The Pew Charitable Trusts, and The Rockefeller Foundation. I will 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. No bull, no fancy powerpoints, just real-world tools for being an artist who writes grants.

RSVP here.

Wednesday October 22, 7 – 8:30 p.m.: Book Talk: “Making Your Life as an Artist”
The Halsey Institute, 161 Calhoun St. Charleston SC 29424
Andrew will talk about the challenges artists face, and the creativity and resourcefulness we use to over come them. How can we build balanced, productive, sustainable artist lives?
