Speaker: CARY REEDER
Topic: Don’t Be Afraid of the Big Bad Proposal: Exhibition and Grant Proposal Writing for Scaredy Cats
Writing proposals for art exhibitions and grants can seem like a daunting process. In this talk, Cary Reeder will cover the basic elements of exhibition and grant proposals including developing an exhibition or project idea, writing a bio, CV, and artist statement, as well as developing a budget, all with the goal of taking the fear out of the proposal writing process.
