WHAT IS IT?
Learn how to put an effective grant proposal together and fill in the required application materials. You should have most of your application written in this four-hour practical workshop!
Cinespace Inc. can act as an auspice for your application, particularly if applying for a CBF Content Grant (you require a non-profit incorporated association to apply).
There's a small auspice fee added on top of the funding you ask for which pays for ongoing support and administration of the grant from Cinespace and Jon King Consulting (if you're successful).
Places are limited and it’s first in, best dressed, but you must have a project and be ready to apply for upcoming funding to be offered a spot.
WHERE IS IT?
Sessions will run face-to-face at your choice of either the Footscray Community Arts (FCA) or the 3ZZZ studios in Brunswick.
WHAT TO BRING?
Your script or concept for a narrative, documentary and/or episodic project;
The application form for your chosen grant;
Any questions for Jon;
