7 November, 11am to 4pm
Ards Arts Centre, Town Hall, Conway Square, Newtownards, Co.Down
This session is aimed at artists who feel they need to gain an overview on how to put together proposals for a variety of contexts. This session will look at how to target opportunities relevant to your practice and outline issues that you may need to consider when approaching different opportunities such as Arts Council / Local Authority bursaries or Public Gallery calls for submissions. The session will discuss: Dos and Don’ts; writing style; formatting; imaging and presentation and provide examples of good and bad proposals.
Curator Marianne O’Kane Boal will bring her curatorial experience to bear when discussing the expectations that public venues and funding organisations have in relation to artists seeking their supports.
Attendance at this event is fully sponsored by Ards and North Down Borough Council Arts Office
