ART+ GRANT WRITING 101 PROGRAM

APPLICATION DEADLINE: April 10, 2024

 

The ART+ Grant Writing 101 Program is open to Indigenous, Black, POC, and newcomer artists living in the National Capital Region. Learn from experts the key elements, tools, and practices to consider when writing a grant. All sessions will have a theoretical and hands-on component to work directly on your application.

Participants will learn how to: 
1. Identify different levels of funding: Municipal, Provincial, National, and Private (foundations, corporate, etc.)
2. Understand the criteria for eligibility
3. Understand the criteria of assessment
4. Writing techniques to work on art statements, project descriptions, and artistic CV & Bio
5. Develop accurate timelines and budgets
6. Partnership development

Additional program information: 

  • 15 spots available (first-come, first-served basis)

  • Participants must commit to attending all sessions 

  • Program fee: $30 + HST (subsidies available)

  • The program will use a clinic format. Participants will learn by working on their grant application

  • All participants must bring their laptops and submit their work after the session for additional feedback (if you don't have a laptop, please let our team know, and we will provide one during the session - limited availability)

  • Graduating participants will receive a certificate from the Ottawa Arts Council, Arts Network Ottawa (ANO), and the Multicultural Artists' Coalition (MAC-CAM)   


The ART+ Grant Writing Program is an initiative brought to you by the Multicultural Artists’ Coalition (MAC-CAM) in partnership with the Arts Network Ottawa (ANO) and the Ottawa Arts Council through the Mandala Project.
