Grant Writing Info-Session

Grant writing is an essential part of any artistic profession, but for many artists the application process can be mysterious and overwhelming. Whether you are putting the final touches on an existing grant application, or conceiving your next big project, this info session will give you the tools to submit with confidence. (While this event is open to artists in all disciplines, the panel will focus on applications for film and media arts projects.)
