Writing grants can be hard—sharing your idea and asking for funding requires planning, advocacy, and strategy. ARTogether, Oakstop and Oakland Art Murmur are pleased to present a free grant-writing workshop led by choreographer Hope Mohr.
The workshop will cover the elements of a strong persuasive narrative; budgeting; tips for writing about evaluation and outreach; and strategies for a sustainable grant writing practice.
The workshop is perfect for artists who are looking for funding for their next idea, project, or performance.
