Grant Seeker Workshops Available

Are you thinking about applying for an FY2020 Arts Council grant? Attend a workshop between April 22 and 24.

Participants will gain an understanding of program guidelines, learn how to construct a competitive application, and have the opportunity to meet and ask questions of Council staff—including our new Artist Services Manager Dominique Gustin.
