Interested in finding ways to support an upcoming creative project but don't know where to look? Having trouble finding ways to talk about your work and your values? In this 2.5-hour introductory course, we will talk about grants that support emerging artists/creatives, and how to pitch a project. We'll share important resources, and look at helpful examples. This workshop will also give a brief (unofficial) overview for the Fulbright research grant-writing process.
Please note - course will be geared more toward the visual arts, but skills are very transferable!
