Writing artists proposals can be challenging. It’s not easy taking an emerging idea in your head and a blank A4 page and transforming it into a clear and creative proposal that will, hopefully, capture the imagination of a selection panel.
The half day workshop will include a presentation and conversation on best practice in writing proposals and applications for funding, including opportunities to review some recent artist’s proposals. It will cover hints and tips on developing proposals, a discussion on common pitfalls and ‘watch-out-fors’, observations on selection panels as well as selection criteria, advice on sample headings to communicate ideas clearly and creatively, suggestions for supporting documentation, CVs and Biogs as well as advice on time management and the dangers of procrastination.
This workshop may be of particular interest to Artists planning on applying to DLR Arts Office for a Bursary or Artists Award, as the deadline will be [TBC] Friday 25 October 2019.
The workshop will be led by Annette Moloney, a socially engaged curator, commissioner and collaborator. Her professional practice includes curating exhibitions; producing public art commissions; exhibitions and public engagement events; public sector policy development, implementation, evaluation and facilitation; third level lecturing and artist’s professional development and mentoring. She is a Public Art Specialist including previous work as an Arts Council of Ireland Adviser on Public Art.
Presented by Art Net DLR in partnership with Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown Co Co Arts Office.
