Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane
Brisbane Powerhouse and Brisbane City Council are presenting Switch On, a
series of arts industry forums, discussions and workshops throughout 2001.
Idea to Reality is the
second forum/workshop in this series. Idea to Reality will focus on skills
development, discussion and practical workshop in the art of grant writing.
This is a great opportunity for anyone wanting to apply for an arts grant as
either a first time applicant or a previously unsuccessful applicant
(including young and emerging artists, experienced artists, community
organisations) to learn some of the tools of the trade necessary to improve
your chances of success in seeking financial assistance from funding bodies.
Objectives of the forum/workshop is to give participants:
* overview information regarding the arts grants that are available;
* critical success/failure factors;
* general advice for planning and writing applications;
* practical experience in writing various application components
Following an introduction from Zane Trow, Artistic Director Brisbane
Powerhouse, each of guest speakers from the three major funding bodies (Scot
O'Hara, Australia Council; an Arts Queensland representative; and Glenda
Johnson, Brisbane City Council) will give a brief overview of the grants
that are available then focus on briefly listing what are the critical
success and failure factors in being granted funding.
There will then be an overview of some general advice in terms of preparing
a good application before breaking into groups to, given a hypothetical
project scenario, discuss and prepare one component of an application using
a hybridised form presented earlier. Components will include: Detailed
Project Description (to include description, history/background, rationale,
objectives, benefits, ability to manage/deliver, timeline); and Project
Support Material, Personnel (roles & responsibilities), Grant Writing
Timelines and Strategy. These sessions will be facilitated by the guest
Each of the 3 groups then returns and reports back what they've come up with
before opening the floor to questions & further discussion.
