NYFA's Online Learning Initiative provides professional development workshops for artists, arts administrators, and arts professionals nationally and internationally through a webinar platform.

Creators in all disciplines, from the comfort of your home, studio, or anywhere with Internet access, can explore the fundamental principles of sustainability in the arts through NYFA's new Online Learning Initiative. As many of our professional development programs are focused on building community, these online sessions also provide virtual networking opportunities to registered participants.

HOW IT WORKS:

      • Each session lasts for 90 minutes, including the lecture and Q&A.
      • Each session will be offered on the third Tuesday of each month from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM EST.*
      • Creatives from around the world can join workshops through our Anymeeting webinar platform or international call-in numbers.
      • Participants will have access to the presenters during the live sessions, and also to the program materials and recordings after the workshops as long as they register before the session starts.
      • Registrants will have access to the recordings for six months following the session.*

*Unless otherwise noted.

If you are interested in bringing customized online learning to your community, please visit our Educational Partnerships page or contact Felicity Hogan, Director of NYFA Learning, at [email protected].

UPCOMING SESSIONS:

The following workshops are all led by specialized coaches from our NYFA Coaching program, who bring many years of experience as art industry leaders to their presentations. As many of our professional development programs are focused on building community, and these online sessions also provide virtual networking opportunities to registered participants.

Film Pitches and Grant Applications: What Funders Really Want to Know, and Why

Presented by Matthew Seig, NYFA Coach and Media Specialist

Your letters of introduction and grant applications do more than just describe what your project is and who you are. They are a window into your skills, the viability of your project, and your professional and personal profile. We are going to talk about all of this, and some of the important factors that will govern your success, in "Film Pitches and Applications: What Funders Really Want to Know and Why." Regardless of whether your project is nonprofit or for-profit in nature many of the same things are important to both, and they can help establish a sustainable career as well.

In this workshop, participants will learn how to assign value to their time, clearly allocate and spend money on a project, and take away tips about how to best structure budgets for project and funding opportunities. This workshop is geared towards individual artists, both visual and performing who have a project in mind and are seeking funding.
