A full-day workshop empowering artists and individuals to fundraise effectively and create a financial strategy for their projects.
The session looks at:
● Approaching galleries and funding bodies with a great proposal
● Minimising rejection when applying for funding
● How to create a financial support strategy for your projects
● Writing about your practice effectively
● Finding out about the best sources of funding for your activities
This session offers feedback sessions for funding proposals in progress in a friendly, supportive environment. Participants are asked to bring copies of a fundraising proposal they are working on. Each proposal will be examined and suggestions will be made to improve chances of success. The session is aimed at practitioners with little to no experience of fundraising, or those who need a refresher course in current strategies.
