About this event

Now running on the first Monday of every month (unless noted).

Many creatives have a big project they'd like to make, but may lack the resources to make it a reality. Luckily, Canada has a fantastic variety of Grant program for the Arts and we want to help you take advantage of that.

Join us as we delve into the often intimidating field of Grant funding and give you advice on what grants you can apply for, how to write arts grants, and typical expectations to met to create a strong application!

Please note that while many of the skills learned in this workshop are transferable to Grants for other creative disciplines, we will be primarily focused on Games grants.

Get Money. Make Art!
