Our partners at Rivet will share ten easy steps for finding and applying for the right grants, residencies, and fellowships to help you create your next project. Rivet’s three co-founders Katrina Neumann, Sebastien Sanz de Santamaria & Kira Simon-Kennedy have decades of experience fundraising for creative projects across art, music, film, technology, and nonprofits and have helped connect thousands of people to life-changing opportunities across the globe.

During this workshop, you will learn:

  • How to identify the right opportunities. Out of the millions out there, what is going to be the best use of your time and effort?

  • Effective ways to show your work. When it comes to submitting applications for these opportunities, you'll have to tell the story of your work and what motivates your creativity.

  • Productivity hacks to make 2019 your best year yet! From finding the accountability partners to using the right project management tools, this is where working smarter and not harder will come into play.
