Carolyn Bell Farrell of the MacLaren Art Centre will facilitate both grant writing workshops.  With over twenty years of experience in grant writing, both as an assessor and a successful applicant, Carolyn will share her insights for developing a winning case.  Participants will be introduced to how grants are completed and juried through reviewing sample project grant applications submitted by artists and arts organizations.

Topics include the application components, such as the artist statement/organizational mandate, evaluation/measure of success, the schedule of work, the budget and support material, as well as the adjudication process and managing grant outcomes.

There is no cost for the workshop, however you must pre-register by calling the Department of Culture at 705-739-4299 or email
