Grant Writing For Disabled Artists

Kickstart Disability Arts & Culture presents our first event in our 2021 Workshop Series, Grant Writing For Disabled Artists

This grant-writing workshop facilitated by Regan Shrumm is geared towards Artists who identify as living with disabilities based in British Columbia.

This workshop will feature tips on where to apply (City, Municipal, BC Arts Council, Canada Council for the Arts, and Private Foundations); learning about how grants are assessed; tips on scheduling the grant timeline; and writing advice.

The session will be interactive by offering some activities to help participants think through their project. It will also include some strategies on the accommodations that some of the granting agencies such as the BC Arts Council and Canada Council for the Arts have for individuals with disabilities.

ASL and Closed Captions will be provided.
