Free grant writing workshops assist applicants with RADF submissions
Regional artists seeking financial support to develop an exciting arts project could benefit from a free intensive grant writing workshop in July.
Gladstone Region Acting Mayor Chris Trevor said grant writing workshops led by Creative Regions Inc Creative Producer, Di Wills, would be held at three regional locations.
The workshops will be held in conjunction with the Gladstone Region Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) Special Round 2016-17 for short-term projects that start after September 5 this year.
"Workshops will be suitable for beginner and advanced submission writers and are designed to provide helpful advice for residents keen to apply for RADF funding," Councillor Trevor said.
"These workshops are designed to provide a greater understanding of funding requirements and to help make the process of submitting applications easier."
Gladstone Regional Council's Environment & Community Services Committee Chair Councillor Cindi Bush said workshops would provide a step in the right direction to progress projects.
"Participants are encouraged to be aware of RADF Guidelines, Expression of Interest and Application forms, arrive with questions and be ready to work on their submission," Cr Bush said.
Grant writing workshops will be held from 10.30am to 2pm at the Agnes Water Rural Transaction Centre on Thursday, July 13; at Mount Larcom Hall on Friday, July 14 and at the Gladstone Regional Art Gallery & Museum on Saturday, July 15.
A RADF Committee Workshop will also be held at the Gallery & Museum on Saturday, July 15 from 2.30pm to 4.30pm.
Current and future RADF committee members are invited to workshop together to develop mentoring and submission assessment skills, discuss guidelines, application forms and outcome reporting processes.
Bookings are essential for all workshops by phoning the Gallery & Museum on 4976 6766 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
