A Working Session on Grants
Would you like to improve or develop new skills, attend a conference or a workshop, but don’t have the funds to do this? Do you work as a volunteer with children or members of the community and feel constrained by lack of funds for supplies? There are grants available through the Guild (the Conant and Janda grants) and through state and county arts councils that might help.
Three successful applicants for the Guild’s Conant Grant will talk about the grants process and answer your questions. Erika Cleveland, our current Conant Grant recipient, will talk about her experience applying for the grant. Erika also received the CRAVE grant through Convergence/Torpedo Factory a few years ago for the Materialized Magic community fiber arts project. She got grants to fund a gallery project when she was an art therapist working with the elderly and kids. Past Conant Grant recipient Eileen Doughty will also discuss her experience with the William A. Strauss Fellowship, awarded by the Arts Council of Fairfax County. Diana Guenther, also a Conant Grant recipient, will add her experience obtaining local grants for art projects in an elementary school.
There is no charge for Guild members to attend this session, but registration is required.
