We are proud to inform participants that Savvy Sessions are now free, which is made possible by Canada Council for the Arts. Without their funding, each Savvy Session workshop would cost anywhere from $80.00 – $250.00 per person.
This workshop will teach you how to put your best grant forward! Learn about the types of grants available to artists of all disciplines. Find out what the major funding bodies such as the Canada Council for the Arts, and CALQ (Conseil des Arts et Lettres du Quebec) are looking for. This workshop focuses on how to pitch your passion, using appropriate “grant” language, budgets, workplan, and supporting materials.
Participants will also learn about important social media tools, and other tips and tricks to optimize social media usage.
