How to Write a Funding Application

Venue: Online
Prices: Free

Free online workshop with Briana Pegado on Thu 31 August 2023, 10am – 12.30pm.

Are you thinking of applying for funding for your practice, project, or a collaboration and don’t know where to start? Do you know the basics, but would like to improve your skills? Perhaps you don’t know where to even find funds in the first place?

This practical online workshop led by Briana Pegado will take you through the process of writing a successful funding application. It aims to cover all aspects of structuring your application and offer top tips and advice to ensure that your submissions have every chance of success.

The workshop will focus on:
* How to talk about yourself and your practice using a personal values compass
* How to write a good funding application based on a strong proposal
* How to think about evaluating and monitoring your impact as an artist
* How to budget, including how to calculate in-kind costs
* Resources you can use to guide you
* A very quick intro to different types of funding and fundraising.

This 2.5 hour Zoom workshop will involve some practical writing exercises, so bring along something to write or type with. There will also be Q+A, where we will be encouraging questions and discussion from participants.

Workshop leader Briana Pegado is an artist and author of Make Good Trouble: A Guide to the Energetics of Disruption. She works as an anti-racism facilitator and consultant for arts organisations including Glasgow International, the Glasgow Connected Arts Network, and Africa In Motion Festival. She is Founder of the Edinburgh Student Arts Festival (ESAF), Community Engagement Producer for OMOS, and former Co-Director of We Are Here Scotland.
