“How to Make Your Grant Proposal Better than the Rest” Workshop on February 26
Grants Workshop Thursday February 26, 6-8 PM with Mary Kerr
Presented by Mary Kerr, documentary film producer and Professional Development Program Manager at Creative Capital Foundation
Mary Kerr has sat on both sides of the funding table: writing grants proposals for documentary film projects and non-profit media organizations, and participating in funding panels for the NEA, NYSCA, ITVS, POV, Tribeca Gucci Fund, and others. She’ll give her insider perspective on applying for the right kinds of grants, how to make your proposal stand above the rest, what makes a great (and appropriate) work sample, and most importantly – what not to do in a grant proposal.
