Event will take place on Zoom
This is a broad, introductory overview session to give you the information you might need to start to think about applying for funding for your creative practice. It will be clear and simple enough for absolute beginners who may be confused about taking the first steps in the world of seeking funding, but will also be a useful refresher to provide clarification for those with some prior experience.
In the session Dawn and Matt will cover: main sources of funding for artists; the difference between commissions, bursaries and residencies; writing about your idea; developing a project; managing your project; partnerships; audience development; budgeting; and evaluation.
They will talk broadly about the subject of funding, but will use case studies from their own practices to help you get an understanding of the specifics.
We’ll open the Zoom call at 6pm so people can settle in and nobody feels rushed. The event will commence properly at 6:30pm.
We’ll be following up this introductory session with a second phase in the New Year whereby small groups will meet with Matt and Dawn to talk through your own work-in-progress proposals, applications and bids.
1-1 chats will also be available in the new year.
We’ll be collecting frequently asked questions to produce a toolkit as part of this series of activity.
