Grantwriting Part 3: Budget and Documentation Dos and Don’ts

  • October 27, 2021, 7:00pm – 9:30pm

All are welcome to attend these free online workshops, designed to help you to advance your art career. To receive a link, email training@creativemanitoba.ca.

It’s no secret that we creatives dislike (very much) writing about who we are and what we do. Some of us would rather do ANYTHING than compose our own proposals and résumés, but writing about ourselves and our work is an essential part of grantwriting. Likewise, drafting a sound budget and strong documentation of past work is a must for a successful application. How you present your practice to a selection committee is a determining factor in whether you receive funding or not. Join in this series of workshops to learn how to put your best foot forward and increase your chances of receiving a grant to continue making your work.

Join us for parts 1 and 2 of this three part grant writing workshop series.

  • Yvette Cenerini

    Yvette Cenerini is a Franco-Métis artist who has participated in group shows in Manitoba, Québec and Ontario and has had a solo exhibition at La Maison des artistes, Winnipeg. Her work in paint and photocollage is characterized by the use of animal-as-subject. It examines the intricacies of emotion through a simple aesthetic, laden with sarcastic undertones. Cenerini is currently interested in the amalgamation of collage and new media to depict the notion of dependency. She is a graduate of MAWA’s Foundation Mentorship Program.
