Writing applications

As artists, we spend much of our time trying to balance making work with making sure our work can be made. Given the recent changes to arts funding programs across the country, competition for grants and opportunities has never been as high. But many of us don’t know what a successful application should contain. We’re reluctant to boast (or we boast too much). We struggle with imposter syndrome. Or we simply don’t know where to begin.

Who is it for?

  • Artists, arts workers or anyone wanting to increase their confidence and skills in writing applications for grants, awards, residencies and more.
