Classes (Online): Grant Writing Intensive – Ghost River Theatre

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.


  • 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.

February 21 – April 4 2023
Tuesdays: 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm MT.

This intensive will be taking place online via Zoom.
