This Grantwriting workshop is intended to provide emerging and mid-career filmmakers with little to no grant writing experience with the knowledge and language needed to write a successful application. The Instructor will cover grant writing for both emerging and professional media artists who are attempting to access grants from various funding agencies such as media art centres, City of Ottawa, Ontario Arts Council and Canada Council for the Arts. It is helpful, but not necessary to have a project in mind for this workshop.

Participants will learn about the following topics:
(a) Funding resources (arts councils, media arts centres, etc.);
(b) Funding programs and deadlines;
(c) The grant writing process; and
(d) Reviewing examples from successful Grant proposals.
