Got an idea for an art project and want to find out how to get it off the ground? Register now for Grant Writing workshops and one-to-one clinics, coming up this month in Murwillumbah, Grafton and Brunswick Heads.

Arts Northern Rivers is excited to present a series of one-day workshops examining some of the key strategies in writing successful grant applications, including a close-up look at best practice examples.

This is a great opportunity to build your skills in this area by learning about the common mistakes that can be avoided, and identifying your strengths in making your application stand out.

It’s also very timely, with a call for applications for the Regional Arts Fund and Country Arts Support Project about to be announced.

Following the workshop, there will be an additional opportunity for a small number of participants to get expert feedback on any grant application/s they have already completed, in a one-to-one clinic with Arts Northern Rivers’ CEO Peter Wood or program coordinator Natalie Bull.

There are three workshops available, each running from 10am to 2pm, with clinics to follow, at: Tweed Regional Gallery, Murwillumbah, Tuesday 24 July; Grafton Regional Gallery, Wednesday 25 July; Brunswick Heads Community Centre, Thursday 26 July.

Places are limited so we recommend you book early to secure a place.

Participation in the workshop costs $20 plus booking fee, and includes a light lunch. The clinics are free; however, these are only available to workshop participants.

Booking details are available on the Arts Northern Rivers website at http://artsnorthernrivers.com.au/pages/whats-on-our-events.
