Event description

Description

Whether you are a visual, digital or performing artist or craftsperson, responding to a creative brief or applying for an artist’s opportunity has always been competitive but with less opportunities and funding being more stretched, you could find your proposal is one of hundreds.

So how do you make sure that your proposal stands out and makes it onto the YES pile?

Join Sandy Kirkby and Sally Watkins for an informal session looking at how to write a good proposal that will keep the selectors engaged.

WHAT YOU WILL GO AWAY WITH

Effective ways to streamline and describe your ideas and present them in the best possible light

They have been on selection panels for many open calls for b-side and other regional arts organisations – they have seen and read thousands of proposals. Their informal and warm style is underpinned by their generosity and experience as arts practitioners for over 20 years.

WHAT TO BRING

You will be provided by with handouts and exemplar material so all you need to bring is a pen and should you wish to bring some images of your work please do. Laptops and iPads welcome but not essential.
