Among the many challenges that exist in the career of every artist is the need for funding. As we all know this is a hugely competitive place and making the best application possible is key in standing a chance of making a successful application. It may seem overly complex at first sight, but using some simple best practice steps can remove some of the fear. This workshop will look at the kinds of funding available, identifying when or if you truly need funding, how to make the best case for your projects. Simply put, whilst the workshop does not guarantee that you will receive funding, it will put you on the path to ensuring that you are able to say that you have made the best case possible.
