Event Details

As a fundraiser for performance collective bluemouth inc., and inspired by the immersive & intimate nature of their work, we are holding a hands-on tailored workshop. We will lead each participant through a process of writing a clear, engaging and convincing grant application.


This workshop is intended for artists and/or independent companies applying for arts council project grants at any level (municipal, provincial, and federal).


The workshop is divided into three parts and will extend from December 2015 – February 2016:

1.       A small working group session. We learn more about your idea and develop a work plan for the upcoming one on one sessions. We outline the fundamentals to assist you in crafting your proposal and budget

2.       A one on one work session including overview of your written application and budget with feedback.

3.       A final one on one session to refine the application before the submission deadline.


Regular Registration (after November 1, 2015): $300/companies; $200/individuals

Registration ends: November 30, 2015
