This practical session will offer advice and support in securing funding for artists. Each participant will be encouraged to provide Sarah in advance with an application that they are currently working on. Over the course of the session each application will be discussed with the group, showing participants how to improve upon their work and how to tackle questions they have been unable to answer. By the end of the session each participant will have received dedicated support for their own application as well as the benefits of learning about the applications of others.
Proposals or applications should be emailed in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org before the 27th May so that Sarah can prepare for the session.
