Join us for the second iteration of our grant writing workshop series designed to teach you the basics of grant writing.

Grant Writing 2.0 is presented by Atlanta Contemporary and C4 Atlanta. In this workshop, each student will receive a brief recap from the Grant Writing 101 course as well as diving deep into how to create a project or organizational budget to support your application process as well as strengthening your grant narrative.

Whether you are an arts administrator looking to find funding to support your nonprofit or an individual artist seeking financial support for a body of work - this workshop will provide you with the tools necessary to complete your financial support documents for your grant applications.

We have detailed below a few questions that we will be sure to address during the workshop:

  1. What is the difference between an Artist Project Grant and an Organizational Grant?
  2. What is the difference between a “project budget” and an “organizational budget”?
  3. What are examples of In-Kind expenses and how do I display these on my budget form?
  4. What documents and materials do I need before I begin the application process?
  5. What are some examples of good grant narrative language? What are some examples of bad grant narrative language?

Keep in mind that this is an introductory level workshop that does not require previous experience in grant writing to attend. Attendance of the Grant Writing 101 session prior to the Grant Writing 2.0 session is not required. If you were unable to attend the Grant Writing 101 session, you will still be able to follow along to this course and understand the basics of grant writing. The first portion of the workshop will include a brief recap of the first session, including answers to these questions:

  1. Where do I find grants and what are some tips for researching funding opportunities?
  2. What is the difference between a government, foundation, and corporation grant?
  3. What does “good” narrative look like, and what are some examples of “bad” grant writing?
