This hands-on, empowering workshop is for women of color who are dancers, musicians, painters, designers, sculptors, photographers, filmmakers, spoken word artists, actresses, writers, community organizers and other creatives. Come and learn how to turn your ideas into compelling grant narratives and budgets, and how writing grants can aid your artistic process. You deserve this opportunity to get a grant to fund your project and learn how other women of color artists just like you have been able to find good local and national funding matches for your work.
Presenter: S. Renee Mitchell is an award-winning writer, multimedia artist and former journalist, who was nominated – twice – for the prestigious Pulitzer Prize. She left a 25-year newspaper career in 2008 to reinvent herself as a social-justice grant writer, creative consultant and a creative healing griot, who nurtures hope, empowerment and inspiration into the lives of women of color and young girls. She has successfully secured grant funding for her own art and theater projects and for other organizations and individuals. She is also working as a contracted writer for Literary Arts’ Writers In The Schools program, Wordstock, and Portland Public Schools.
