Artist Professional Development Conversations: Answering Grant Writing Questions

WED, JAN 20, 2021
4:00 PM

We invite artists creating in all disciplines to take part in a new series, Artist Professional Development Conversations, that will share tips, insights, and best practices for navigating the business side of an artistic career. Each virtual session will feature a conversation with FTH staff members to discuss how to better support, present, and market an artistic practice. Topics will include fundraising, booking and programming with presentation venues, and PR and marketing stratgies. 

Join FTH Deputy Director Sami Abu Shumays as he talks about what makes a compelling grant application. Whether applying for an artist grant, residency or other opportunities, there are common questions funders ask for in their applications. During this workshop, we will go over some of those commonly asked questions to help you write a better arts application and gain more support for your art practice. 

The conversation will be followed by a Q&A.

The session is free but RSVP is required. Registered participants will receive a Zoom link prior to the event date.
