Artists in Canada have a rich array of resources in both provincial and federal grants that can help finance projects. In this workshop, you’ll hear about how to find which grants are best suited to your project, how to most effectively write a grant proposal, maximize funding by applying to multiple grants, and adapting your proposal to work with specific grants.

Financial Literacy

For many artists, balancing financial organization with their artistic practice can be difficult. This workshop will provide practical tools and methods for the independent artist, such as personal budgeting and cash flow, small business accounting and invoicing, expense tracking and reporting, and business management.
