Grant-Writing for Media Artists with Bev Pike

This workshop will review everything you need to know about putting together, writing and submitting a grant.  In addition to outlining the Who, What and Why of your project, your application needs to pitch your story in the right way to the panel of jurors.  Hear some insight into how a jury makes its decision on grant applications and learn tips for how to make your application convincing.

Come prepared to begin drafting your own grant applications.  You will receive individual and group support from our facilitator, Bev Pike.  Pens and paper will be available.

Camera Fundamentals Workshop with Wendy Buelow
