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.

Learning to write a budget requires a skill set most creative people overlook when developing their practice. Accounting for your time, your materials, and project needs are an invaluable way to make your practice more successful. 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.
