GRANT WRITING WORKSHOP

If you’re an artist, writer or producer interested in learning more about grant writing, this one's for you! We host free quarterly workshops that cover the basics of submitting a successful grant!

The sessions are hosted by our lead grant writer, Scott Nihill, who has 20 years of experience applying to a broad range of grants. He provides the basics of applying and the tips & tricks he’s learned over the years. At the end of each workshop, Scott will try to answer as many of your pre-submitted questions as possible.

Those who attend get access to the resources we share in our presentation and can enter to win a free one-on-one (virtually) project feedback session by our team.

ART JAM

Welcome to our 10-week creative bootcamp!

This one is designed for those who need a little extra motivation for their projects or just want to engage with the community in the name of creativity!

Essentially, you’ll be choosing a project (big or small) that you’d like to work on during the creative challenge and post updates on your progress to the community ONCE a week.

Some details & guidelines:
  • One update per week, uploaded to our Art Jam Discord group.
  • Any media is welcome: photographs, illustrations, videos, games, writing, concepts, you name it.
  • No themes! Let your imagination run wild.
  • Submit a new work of art every week, or post updates on a single, bigger project you're working on (ie script, game etc)
  • Not feeling creatively inspired but still want your dose of art? Feel free to shadow the process and if it inspires you, great!
  • We encourage everyone to follow along others peoples’ projects and provide constructive feedback wherever possible!
