With multiple funding rounds and opportunities closing in May and June, City of Gold Coast have organised representatives from all of the major arts funding and fundraising bodies to spend a day with Gold Coast artists and creatives.
The free workshop will take place at HOTA Home of the Arts on Saturday 11 May from 9.30am. In the morning, there’ll be in-depth presentations from the Australia Council for the Arts, Arts Queensland, City of Gold Coast and Creative Partnerships Australia. Following that, they will host a panel where guest speakers will respond to common project funding scenarios. Bring your notepads for handy hints!
In the afternoon, you can attend a 15 min ‘speed consultation’ with one of the guest presenters and other experienced grant assessors. Come prepared to tell them about your project in 5 minutes or less and the experts will do their best to provide feedback and suggestions to help point you in the right direction when applying for funding or planning to fundraise. Bring your questions too! This is a rare opportunity to gain insights relevant to you, directly from funding bodies and assessors who’ve read hundreds of applications.
Note: You can only book in for a speed consultation in person on the day. Morning tea and lunch will be provided.
