In 2011, the Queens Council on the Arts will build its professional
development efforts with a series of marketing based Boot Camps for
Queens Arts Express participants and the Queens arts community. In
these harsh economic times, how do you create a strong narrative to
share the importance of your artistic work? With bookend workshops in
grant writing we will investigate how to effectively build your story
to gain support and share with your community.
These intensive workshops will focus on providing participants with a
set of tools to effectively tell their unique story. Field experts
will lead Boot Camp on Creating Your Pitch, Grant Writing, Building an
Online Presence, and Community Partnerships.
GRANT WRITING PLUS+: WHAT’S YOUR PITCH? & PUTTING IT TOGETHER PANEL REVIEW
Can you talk smartly and succinctly about your art or organization?
What is unique about your story?
Launching the 2011 QAX Boot Camp Series, in January What’s Your Pitch?
will outline the grant writing structure and help you build an
effective pitch. In May, the Boot Camp Series will book end with
Putting It Together a final look at how all the various components of
telling your story fit into a grant proposal.
This two-part workshop led by experienced grant writing consultant
Melissa Sandor includes a hand-on writing workshop in January and mock
panel review in May.
The hands-on/mock panel component of the workshop is limited to 12
participants. THESE PARTICIPANTS MUST ATTEND BOTH SESSIONS.
Additional participants may attend to observe and learn these
techniques, but they will not be able to receive direct feedback or
hands-on assistance from the expert.
Registration is on a first come first serve basis.
