A full day workshop empowering artists to fundraise effectively and create a financial strategy for their practice. Created, developed and delivered by Emilia Telese. NB this workshop will take place at Castlefield Gallery’s New Art Space Federation House, entrance on Dantzic Street, Manchester, M60 0AF.
The session looks at:
- Approaching galleries and funding bodies with a great proposal
- Minimising rejection when applying for funding
- How to create a financial support strategy for your art practice
- Writing about your practice effectively
- Finding out about the best sources of funding for your practice
This session offers tailor-made feedback sessions for funding proposals in progress in a friendly, supportive environment. Participants are asked to bring copies of a fundraising proposal they are working on. Each proposal will be examined and suggestions will be made to improve chances of success.
