> Option 1
Sign up for Option 1 and you'll learn the basics of writing an effective grant proposal from the one-and-only Judith Teitelman: LA's most candid, experienced, and entertaining expert on an otherwise boring (but crucial) topic. If all you're looking for is stimulating discussion, cool hand-outs, and some helpful exercises, sign up for Option 1.
> Option 2
Need a good kick in the pants? Option 2 gets you everything from Option 1, plus... we'll help you complete a real grant application that'll be reviewed by a panel of real experts — folks who are asked sit on grant panels and review artist proposals all the time, like LACMA curator Rita Gonzalez and Barnsdall Art Park gallery director Mark Greenfield.
What's the hook? You get to watch the panel review your proposal (and everyone else's) in real-time. And, you even get to ask them questions afterwards. It's the ultimate "fly-on-the-wall" experience.
Option 2 includes:
- FREE on-site use of our Mobile Digital Lab, including Macbook™ laptops, Epson™ slide scanners, Adobe CS™ design software, Cannon™ digital SLR cameras, and more.
- FREE editorial assistance with your proposal & budget.
- FREE technical support producing your supplemental materials (Powerpoint slideshows, DVDs, page layout, etc.)
- Plus, you'll end up with a finished, vetted grant application that's ready to submit for funding. We'll provide you with a range of funders to choose from. Or, bring your own application to work on. Applications for residency programs okay, too.
Sorry, but this workshop is designed for contemporary visual artists. Only 16 artists will be allowed to sign up for Option 2.
