Grant Writing Clinic

6 hours of one-on-one support from a grant-writing consultant

6 hours of individual work for 6 weeks
from 27 February 2023 to 3 April 2023
individual online or in-person sessions

This unique workshop is designed specifically for artists who have a first draft of an application ready (including a project description and a project budget). Each participant receives 6 hours of one-on-one support from an experienced grant-writing consultant. 

This workshop is open to artists of all disciplines who wish to apply for the grant or subsidy program. Each participant will have the opportunity to meet with the advisor for a total of 6 hours online or in person. The dates, locations, and duration of the one-on-one meetings will be determined by the artist and their advisor, without the assistance of MAI.

The role of the advisor is not to write the application for the artist, but to provide a critical eye, offer relevant feedback and share their expertise with the artist to help complete and refine the grant application.
