Susan Carabello will lead this two-part, hands-on workshop.
Session 1: Saturday, March 9, 1 – 5 p.m.
In the first session, participants will learn how to write an effective and persuasive artist statement (with different uses), and learn tips on giving an “elevator pitch” and using creative writing exercises as tools to describe their work. Participants should provide a digital version of their current statement and two printed copies for peer review.
Session 2: Saturday, March 23, 1 – 5 p.m.
The second session will combine writing exercises, discussions and a mock panel to provide perspective and experience in the grant writing and grantmaking process. Participants will be asked to fill out an artist’s mock fellowship application before the workshop and bring writing materials or a laptop.
