In this session you will learn the key mindsets & strategies — from a grant reviewer’s point of view — that you can use to position yourself as the best candidate for the grant and give the grant panel everything they need to say YES to you.   

This session is for you if you are an artist frustrated about how this all works or tired of wasting precious time chasing grants. Maybe you are a creative entrepreneur looking to fund the work you are passionate about, maybe you are overwhelmed and you don’t know where to start.  Even if you are experienced and have had success in getting grants, you may still be frustrated wondering how grantwriting can become a part of your practice, not just another thing to add to your busy schedule

You will gain confidence knowing how all this works so you can focus on building your career and life as an artist or a creative professional.  You will be ready with everything you need to get grants to fund what you love and to get your work out there.

Here’s what you will learn:
* 3 must-have parts of a mission powered project
* how to reframe your thinking and approach by revealing exactly what funders/grant reviewers really want and need to hear from you
* the secret mindset that successful grantwriters never lose sight of
* how to reverse engineer your get-to-yes proposal to perfectly align with your mission powered project

To attend this webinar, you will need access to a computer with speakers and an Internet connection (hard-wired is preferred over wireless). There is no special software needed.

Webinars are recorded.  The recording will be shared with all previously registered participants after the webinar, regardless of whether participants attend the live workshop or not. Special one-time-only webinars, such as our Artists Talk Tech and Visual Arts Round Table interviews, will also be available for purchase after the fact.
