Workshop On the Nitty Gritty About Grant Research and Applications
July 10, 2014
By Josie Gulliksen
Grants are the lifeline for many arts organizations, but understanding the lengthy and often complicated process of finding, researching, and applying for them is a necessary evil — one that overwhelms and stresses most people.
Thanks to James Echols and his Life is Art organization, stress relief may be on the way at the Grants for Artists Seminar on Tuesday, July 15 from 6:30 to 9:00 p.m. at Eleazar Delgado Studio in the McCormick Place Building, 111 SW 3 St., 7th Floor. Tickets are $10 and parking is free. Pre-registration through the Life is Art Website is strongly recommended (www.lifeisartfest.org/).
Joshua Kingston, a grant writer, curator, and artist manager, will lead the workshop and discuss grants available to artists, and teach how to research grants and understand the application process. The workshop is ideal for individual artists/performers as well as groups.
There will be a Q&A social hour from 8:00 to 9:00, with complimentary wine and snacks.
The seminar is part of the Art/Work Connections monthly series presented by Life Is Art, and features business professionals speaking on a variety of topics vital to the success of working artists.
