Want to write a grant for an art project but don’t know where to start? Have trouble securing project funding? Ghost River Theatre is here to help!
We are hosting a Grant Writing Intensive in the spring of 2023. Led by writer, grant expert, and former Artistic Director of Ghost River Theatre Jason Rothery, this seven-week course will take you step-by-step through the process of conceiving, writing, developing, and submitting an individual project grant.
This weekly intensive will guide participants through preparing either the Concept to Realization or Research & Creation grant for individuals and collectives through the Canada Council for the Arts, leading up to the spring deadline for the Explore and Create a program. We want to equip and empower artists with the knowledge and tools needed to have the best chance possible to secure funding.
TOPICS COVERED WILL INCLUDE:
- Introduction to Canada Council grant requirements
- Grant structure and narrative
- Writing and developing a project plan
- Budgets and support material
- Navigating the online portal system.
- Near the end of the process, a mock jury composed of professional artistic peers will provide feedback on participants’ applications. After the course, workshop participants will submit their applications to the Canada Council for the Arts.
- We’ll examine how to adapt and submit applications to provincial and municipal funding bodies such as the Alberta Foundation for the Arts and Calgary Arts
- Development Association with a finished grant.
