Securing grants is about much more than word-smithing: it’s about making connections with people and advocating for your work. In this 90-minute presentation, we’ll discuss the tactics of how to navigate the world of grants with role-playing case studies in a “masterclass” format. We’ll analyze opportunities, challenges, and setbacks to operating within grant funding sector-wide, and discuss how we can best talk and write about the young people we work with as we advocate for equitable access to excellent music and arts opportunities. Dedicated time for participant questions to follow.
