Artist Boot Camp: Grantwriting Part 2: Résumés, CVs and Biographies with Yvette Cenerini

Hosted by Creative Manitoba

These free online workshops are designed to help you to advance your art career, and welcome participants of all genders and artistic media. 

Presented in partnership with Mentoring Artists for Women’s Art.

It’s no secret that we creatives dislike (very much) writing about who we are and what we do. Some of us would rather do ANYTHING other than compose our own proposals and résumés, but writing about ourselves and work are an essential part of grantwriting. Likewise, a sound budget and strong documentation of past work is a must for a successful application. How you present your practice to a selection committee is a determining factor in whether you receive funding or not. Join in this series of workshops to learn how to put your best foot forward and increase your chances of receiving a grant to continue making your work.

Yvette Cenerini (née Lagimodière) is a Franco-Métis visual artist from Manitoba who lives and works in Winnipeg. Behaviour and relationships are recurring themes throughout her work in media arts and printmaking. Having obtained both a BEd (2001) and a BFA (2010), knowledge-sharing, in the forms of teaching, mentoring, cultural mediation and community engagement, is an important facet of her practice.
