Talking Back to the Officer: A discussion on how to get a grant with Peter Livingstone
XPACE Cultural Centre
303 Lansdowne Ave, Main Floor Unit 2
Saturday, February 16th
XPACE is pleased to present a workshop/discussion with Peter Kingstone (Acting Visual/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 to a jury. There will also be tips on how a grant could be written highlighting things like storytelling, audience, history, and documentation.
We will follow with one on one workshops, so feel free to bring a proposal or an idea/project you are working on.
*The workshop is free, but please RSVP as space is limited. Email [email protected] to reserve your spot.
