Fresh Arts presents 'Funding Strategies for Independent Artists'

  • Art League Houston 1953 Montrose Blvd Houston Texas 77006 USA (map)

Join Fresh Arts’ Executive Director Jenni Rebecca Stephenson and professional composer and musician, Jerry Ochoa of Two Star Symphony, for an overview workshop on strategies and resources for individual artists seeking funds to support their professional art career.

This workshop will cover: identifying grant opportunities (including several key local opportunities), increasing accessibility to additional funding through fiscal sponsorship, and securing individual contributions and institutional support. The workshop will also provide tips for creating and managing successful crowd-funding campaigns and offer examples of how local artists have successfully raised money for their projects. (Specifics on grant-writing and crafting proposals will NOT be covered in this workshop, but will be covered later in Fresh Arts’ workshop series.)

This workshop will apply to all types of individual artists including those in the visual, performing, filmmaking, literary, and multi-disciplinary fields.
