Fundraising Fundamentals 2019: Work Samples Dos and Don’ts!
LMCC’s core fundraising series is designed to help artists develop knowledge and skills in raising the resources to support their practice. The series features workshops on five key areas of fundraising, including: the funding ecosystem, grantwriting, budgeting, work sample dos and don’ts, and cultivating individual donors.
In order to access funding, residencies, and other professional opportunities, artists are often required to submit work samples for consideration. Who reviews work samples? How are they reviewed? How important is formatting? Context? Our interactive workshop will cover these issues and provide a series of examples from a range of artistic disciplines that will ask participants to consider what makes a work sample compelling and why.
With introduction by artist Patricia Miranda.
