Grant Writing for Young Black Artists

Hosted by Nia Centre for the Arts

Are you a young Black artist or youth organizer? Have you been thinking about applying for funding for your projects but are unsure where to start?

In this session, we will explore the basics of preparing a grant application specifically for Black artists. We will breakdown the main components of an application including the proposal, work plan and budget, which you will be able to use to implement your project. Facilitators will share tips on identifying funding resources, building relationships with funders, and writing compelling artist statements that specifically focus on articulating the Black experience through art.

This workshop is for youth 13-29 years old, and the information presented in this session will be most helpful to first time/ newer grant writers.

Facilitators: Paulina O’Kieffe and Adom Acheampong

This workshop is in collaboration with Nia Centre for the Arts
