Grants and other written proposals can feel daunting without a plan. On the first day of this two-part webinar, Yara Liceaga Rojas will cover the basic building blocks that make up a proposal, including how to get organized, where to search for opportunities, what the review process looks like from the inside, and how to persevere through rejection. The second day of the webinar 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. A4A’s fundraising & marketing manager, Molly Rideout, will lend her voice to both portions of this workshop, as both a professional grant-writer and practicing artist. Based between Boston and Puerto Rico, Yara Liceaga Rojas is a writer, performer, and independent grant-writer who works in both English and Spanish.
Suitable for artists in all disciplines. Open to artists based in Massachusetts and Rhode Island. BIPOC and rural artists may receive priority consideration.
