DICE 2019 | Grantwriting Workshop with Maebh Murphy

A successful grant application can get you money and allow you to implement your project ideas or make them more sustainable.

In this practical session we will go into the motivations behind grant applications, how to find suitable funders and the basic elements of a grant application including project proposal, budget, timeline and work packages.
We will also touch on the non-profit industrial complex, introducing some ideas from the book by INCITE! called “The Revolution Will Not Be Funded” and exploring how we can both survive under capitalism and other oppressions and do necessary and sustainable community, artistic and activist work.

This interactive lecture will give you the tools to get cracking on your next funding application and identify areas you need to work on. Concrete project ideas are welcome but not necessary.
