PDSS: Money Moves: Grant Writing As Artistic Practice

PDSS: Money Moves: Grant Writing As Artistic Practice

Hamiltonian Artists is excited to host mentor Holly Bass' Professional Development Speaker Series (PDSS) program: Money Moves: Grant Writing As Artistic Practice. 

This workshop/panel will offer useful strategies and approaches to writing successful local and national grants. The session will also feature a mini-grant panel in action and suggestions for artists interested in serving as panel judges. More importantly, we hope to shift the idea that grant writing is a hoop to jump through or rigged lottery system and to see it as an inherently valuable creative process.

Panelists:
Holly Bass, Artistic Director, Holly Bass|360
Julianne Brienza, CEO/Co-founder of Capital Fringe
Zoe Charlton, Associate Professor of Art at American University
Michael Orlove, Director of Artist Communities, National Endowment for the Arts

Hamiltonian Artists would like to thank Holly Bass, Julianne Brienza, Zoe Charlton, Michael Orlove and everyone who attended the Money Moves: Grant Writing As Artistic Practice program.

PDSS: Solving the mystery of the Fulbright Fellowship

PDSS: Solving the mystery of the Fulbright Fellowship

Two myths that need to be defied about the U.S. Fulbright fellowship program are: 1)Artists, musicians, performers, literary writers and journalists: you too are eligible to qualify for a fellowship. 2) No, it is not impossible to decipher the Fulbright program and application procedure. Artist and Fulbright recipient, Erin Treacy, will help decipher the Fulbright application process and show you how to put together a project proposal, how to find partners in your host country and answer other questions you may have. Erin Treacy was a Fulbright Fellow in Ireland 2009-10 and most recently a resident artist at The Golden Foundation for the Art and the Vermont Studio Center in 2012. She participated in numerous international residency programs and has shown extensively throughout the US and Europe. She received her MFA from UMASS Dartmouth and her BFA from Pratt Institute. Treacy currently resides in NYC and is the Fulbright Program Adviser at the Maryland Institute College of Art. You can see her work at: www.erintreacy.com
