FUNDING FUNDAMENTALS | Grant Writing Webinars

Regional Arts NSW presents 
Funding Fundamentals – Grant Writing Webinars

Regional Arts NSW, with the support of Business Connect and Creative Plus Business will be delivering Grant Writing Webinars to help artists, organisations and arts workers construct applications that stand out from the crowd.
With the recent opening of applications for the 2020-2021 Regional Arts Fund and the additional RAF Boost program, RANSW wants to ensure that all applicants are equipped with the opportunity to learn grant writing skills that will help them to prepare and deliver a successful application.

About the Funding Fundamentals Webinars

Funding and grants are often held up as the holy grail of a successful arts career, but there is no such thing as ‘free’ money. Accessing government and philanthropic funding requires a great deal of work, from preparation to writing applications to delivery and successful acquittal. Funding also means ongoing research and groundwork to be ready for any applications, as well as maintaining the resolve to keep trying after an unsuccessful attempt.
Participants will learn:  

  • The different kinds of funding available
  • Creating a Grant Folder (and being ready for opportunities)
  • Researching Funding and Considering Applications
  • Writing the Proposal – and avoiding the Common Errors
  • Creating a Grant Calendar
  • The Acquittal Process – and how to Recover from Setbacks
  • Five Ways to FAIL at Grants.

The topics are covered with fun, flair and pictures in a relaxed and informal environment. Participants are encouraged to ask questions, share their stories, and get to know each other!
Participants will receive: 

  • A PDF Workbook containing additional materials and tools to support their learning;
  • Lifetime access to a dedicated Funding Dropbox folder full of additional resources and help;
  • Access to additional free resources and suggestions for professional grant assistance.
