grants

Tuesday, August 30 at 6 PM – 9 PM

Xpace Cultural Centre

Xpace is pleased to present a FREE workshop and discussion with Peter Kingstone, Visual and Media Arts Officer at Toronto Arts Council. He will lead an informal discussion on what is needed for a grant, and will address specific questions on difficulties with translating work for a jury. There will also be tips on how a grant should be written, highlighting things like storytelling, audience, history, and documentation.

The workshop will be followed by one-on-one meetings with Xpace staff who can consult on grant-writing strategies for projects specific to attendees.

RSVP at xpace.eventbrite.com to attend.
