Grants and other written proposals can feel daunting without a plan. In Part 1 of this webinar, participants will learn about developing an appropriate project for the appropriate funder and where and how to search for opportunities. In Part 2, Yara Liceaga Rojas will cover the basic building blocks that make up a proposal, including how to get organized, what the review process looks like from the inside, and how to persevere through rejection. The last webinar of the series focuses on a project’s monetary and non-monetary needs and how to build a corresponding proposal budget. Participants will discuss how to set artist fees, as well as the barriers – financial trauma, the devaluing of the arts, and systemic inequities – that come into play when we build our own project budgets. Participants will leave empowered to fight for their worth and prepared to take advantage of creative opportunities.
Based between Boston and Puerto Rico, Yara Liceaga Rojas is a writer, performer, and independent grant-writer who works in both English and Spanish. A4A’s fundraising & marketing manager, Molly Rideout, will be a guest speaker for this workshop, as both a professional grant-writer and practicing artist.
This is part one of a 3-part series. Participants may register for all sessions or select the topic most relevant to them.
