Grant Writing for AFA Film and Video Arts Grants
Past workshop, not currently available
This workshop prepares participants for the Alberta Foundation For the Arts' Individual Artist Grant for the September 1st deadline. One full day of instruction prepares the artist to begin grant writing. After 10 days grant writers will meet with Sandi and submit their grants for her to review. The last session will provide helpful feedback to the grant writers, which will allow the participants to fine tune their grant to submit for the AFA deadline.
