Workshop: everything you ever wanted to know about applying for arts grants

Would you like to apply for an arts grant but don’t know where to start? Or have you applied for a grant before but have not been successful?

Arts Tasmania is presenting a series of free workshops in Launceston, Devonport and Hobart on grant writing for Tasmanian artists.

Our workshops are designed to give you an overview of what you need to do to make a successful grant application.

You’ll learn about all aspects of making a successful grant application including:

  • the pitch

  • project descriptions

  • getting your budget right

  • project planning and timelines

  • presenting artistic support material.

We’ll give you lots of tips and tricks to make your applications shine.
