Introduction to Grant-Writing
A YBCA:You Exclusive
Sun, Feb 10, 1-5pm

Are you an artist unsure of how to enter the world of grants and funding? What is a grant, who gets them, and how do you find and write them? Join YBCA:You Senior Program Manager Beth Pickens in a four-hour experiential grant-writing workshop aimed at emerging and mid-career artists who are interested in learning practical fundraising skills. Pickens has more than 10 years of experience fundraising and grant-writing for artists and arts organizations across the US. The workshop will include writing the essential components of a grant proposal, peer review, and basic instructions to get you started the very next day.

All disciplines welcome. After reserving a ticket, you will receive advance instructions on specific documents and tools to bring. Space is limited to 15 participants!

Participants must be currently enrolled in YBCA:You.
