Grant Writing Success Workshop for Blue Mountains Cultural Center

Free online workshop, 10am-12pm Saturday 23 May 2020 with Blue Mountains Cultural Center community, NSW.

Writing grants is a challenging process. There is a certain nous to matching your idea with the appropriate grant, a definitive ‘art’ to writing and collating support material and a key to understanding application guidelines to gain a clearer understanding of funding criteria. You will be provided with an introduction to funding bodies, tips for researching the right grant for your needs and given an outline of professional support material.

You will also learn a bit about NAVA and be introduced to the Code of Practice for the Professional Australian Visual Arts, Craft and Design Sector. The Code is both a record and a benchmark of best practice across the contemporary arts including legal, ethical and financial business practices, as well as thorough arts industry guidelines.

Workshop Type: Interactive training workshop – delivered via Webinar 

Duration: 2 Hours

Investment: Free for artists local to the Blue Mountains

About the Workshop Facilitator

Justine Youssef is an artist working across multiple disciplines, including performance, video, scent and collaboration. The work is rooted in research into moments and places that allow her to reconfigure authoritative realities and move through questions surrounding neo-colonial rhetoric.

Youssef presented her first solo exhibition ‘All Blessings, All Curses’ at 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art in 2018, and was the recipient of the 2019 John Fries Award. This year she is participating in the Parramatta Artist Studios studio program while working at Pari, a grassroots art space on Darug Land.

This project is supported by the NSW Government through Create NSW.

NAVA acknowledges the traditional owners and custodians of the land where this online event is being streamed and received, the Darug peoples and others who traded on, travelled through and connected with this land, and continue to do so. We recognise all Custodians of Country throughout all lands, waters and territories. We pay our respects to the Elders past, present and emerging. Sovereignty was never ceded.
