Dodge the Shredder: Proposal writing and fundraising strategy workshop for visual artists

16 June 2007 / 10:30 - 16:30


Dodge the Shredder is a combination of peer critique forum, funding strategy and proposal writing workshop for artists developing or planning funding applications in the near future, designed to help increase their chances of success when applying to galleries. Led by artist, artist advisor and Artists’ Networks Coordinator for a-n The Artists Information Company, Emilia Telese.

A well structured and effective proposal can make all the difference when applying for funding for contemporary or ephemeral artforms, particularly time based, conceptual and media art.

Dodge The Shredder is a professional development workshop especially designed for early or mid career artists to improve their proposal writing techniques and adopt a ‘dodge the shredder’ approach to reduce the chance of rejected applications to galleries and grant giving bodies.< ?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
