Grant Writing for Artists Workshop

Hera Gallery presents a workshop on Grant Writing for Artists. It will be held at Hera Gallery in Wakefield, RI on Wednesday, April 27 from 7:00 - 9:30 PM. 

This workshop demystifies the process of grant writing for both individual artists and collaborative projects. In a step-by-step approach, it covers the complete cycle of grant writing, including preparative research, interaction with funders, budget development, writing proposals, and assessment of the process. The steps and processes explored can also be easily translated for use in applications to Artist Colonies and Residencies. It is an appropriate workshop for individual artists, collaborative artists and arts organizations.

The workshop is presented by Barbara Bernstein, an artist and currently an adjunct lecturer at Rhode Island School of Design. The College Art Association has invited Bernstein to present the workshop to its members as have other arts groups and academic art departments. Since 2007, she and her husband, David Garratt, have been the Resident Artists at the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts. She has been awarded grants from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation, The Pennsylvania Arts Council, the HK Mellon Foundation and others for both her work and her teaching.

Attendees will be provided with an extensive list of resources for the grantseeker.

Suggested donation, $25. Pre-registration is requested.  Hera Gallery 401-789-1488

This program is presented with partial support from Hera Educational Foundation and The Friends of Hera. Hera Gallery is free and open to the public and is accessible to persons with disabilities. Parking is available.
