Berlin Art Grant Clinic will be offering two days of intensive seminars on how to complete grant, residency and artistic project applications. The seminars will take place on the 4th and 5th of March, 2017 at Lacuna Lab.
The clinic teaches the essential tools for writing successful grant and residency applications. Invaluable, personalized feedback is also given to each participant to help them fine tune their grant research, writing, budgeting, and strategizing, in order to help them successfully find funding for professional and personal purposes. The seminars are suitable for artists of all disciplines, including curators and art managers. The first seminar day is aimed at those who need to cover the basics of applications and the second day is for those who want to further develop their already existing grant-writing skills.
The ‘Grant Diagnosis Seminar’ on March 4th is designed to act as a crash course, giving participants an overview of the necessary skills and tools needed for competitive grant applications. The seminar will go through how to complete a grant application step by step, covering areas such as writing a comprehensive project description and artist statement. It will also highlight the ways in which artists can go about finding lists of available funding bodies and grant application opportunities. Each participant in this seminar will have a twenty minute one-to-one consultancy with the seminar coordinator where they will have the chance to discuss their particular projects.
The ‘Operation Workshop’ on March 5th is a hands-on grant writing workshop for those who would like to further develop their application skills. Topics such as, how to promote yourself as a strong applicant and how to enrich application content will be discussed. Participants will work with sample applications and will be shown how to create effective timelines and budgets for upcoming proposals. Discussions and idea exchanges with other participants will also be part of the programme. It would be useful for participants to bring along current, planned or past proposals for art grants.
Participants should bring along a computer, paper and pen for note-taking and any current applications they are working on. All of the talks will be held in English.
An early bird rate until March 3rd, 2017 is offered at 86.50 EUR for the seminar and 86.50 EUR for the workshop. Registration after this will cost 105 EUR each.
