Writing Creative Proposals and Pitching Your Work with Annette Moloney
Creative Frame, the professional development network for creative practitioners in Leitrim and the surrounding area, is organising a day-long workshop that will help you to focus on getting ‘Funding Fit’ so to speak. The day will explore how artists can develop creative proposals and will look at ways to pitch your ideas and speaking about your work.
The day will include a presentation and conversation on best practice in writing pitches and applications, some group discussions and reviews of recent artist’s proposals. The workshop will cover hints and tips in developing proposals; a discussion on some ‘watch-out-fors’ and common pitfalls; observations on selection processes and 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. We will also look at how we talk about our work and communicate our ideas effectively, including a peer-to-peer session where all participants are welcome to present a Pecha Kucha style presentation about their work or about project or idea they may be developing.
Who should attend?
This day-long practical workshop is suitable for practitioners from all artforms, so if you are a visual artist, musician, writer, architect, theatre producer, designer / maker or dancer and you have an upcoming project or funding deadline, or intend to write a proposal in the future, the day will be a great opportunity to build your capacity in this area and also to meet with other members of Creative Frame. The workshop is open to practitioners in Leitrim and the surrounding counties. There will be 20 places available.
If you wish to attend this workshop register your interest with Creative Frame Project Manager Leslie Ryan by e mail at firstname.lastname@example.org by Thursday 15th September.
