"2014 - Workshop: Writing an Application for an Arts Grant"

Seeking arts funding can be a time consuming process and, at the end of it all, there's no guarantee of success. Help is at hand.

Arts Upper Hunter will be running workshops in Gloucester and Muswellbrook to make the process less stressful and to improve your chances of getting a grant.
The workshop will focus on items where applications often fall down, especially the budget. Many a good project idea has fallen over because the budget section hasn't been completed properly.

In addition, participants will role-play being an assessment panel. Small groups will assess three applications and come together to discuss which should be funded. Previous participants in this activity have found it a valuable insight into the difficulties faced by panels assessing many applications.

The workshop will cover the most common arts funding sources but, in particular, the Country Arts Support Program, or CASP, which closes on October 1. CASP provides grants of up to $3,000 and, in the Upper Hunter, has a high success rate.

The workshop is free and a light lunch will be provided.

Gloucester: The workshop will be held at The Cottage, 88 King Street, Gloucester on Friday August 8 from 10 am until 1.30 pm. 

Muswellbrook: The workshop will be held at Arts Upper Hunter, Loxton House, 142 Bridge St, Muswellbrook on Monday August 25 from 10am to 1.30 pm.
