The Basic Brilliance of How to Write, Manage and Maintain Funding

Grants, funding, awards, tenders and scholarships are often held up as the holy grail of a successful arts career, but this revenue stream also takes hard work and patience. After all, there’s no such thing as ‘free money’. FUNDING FUNDAMENTALS showcases the basics of preparation, application, and acquittal for any kind of funding, as well as getting organised for future applications.

In this down-to-earth workshop, participants will learn more about:

+ The different kinds of funding available;
+ Creating a Funding Folder and Deadline Calendar;
+ Researching funding and considering applications;
+ Writing the Proposal – and avoiding the common errors;
+ Getting the money right, with budgeting and income;
+ The Acquittal Process – and how to recover from setbacks;
+ The five main ways to ‘fail’ at funding.

Resources, examples and templates will also be provided for a variety of funding applications.

What do I get? All participants of this workshop also receive:
+ Lifetime access to a dedicated Dropbox folder full of additional resources and workbooks to help continue the learning after the workshop is over;
+ Access to additional free webinars to supplement the material covered in the workshop;
+ The possibility of further one-to-one business advice, mentoring and support from one of our creative industries business specialist advisors.
