Intro to Grant Writing

This workshop explores the basics of grant writing,
including crafting a narrative, building a project budget and budget notes, and
selecting work samples and additional documentation.

What’s next: Sustainable Growth for Small Organizations

You’ve started a theater company, built an audience, and
have dedicated supporters–what now? How do you grow and stabilize your
organization? This workshop is for organizations with limited (or no) staff and
small budgets who are interested in learning how to plan for sustainable growth
and/or capacity building. We will discuss identifying and building your
community of supporters, financial best practices, and addressing opportunities
and challenges that allow you to create the art you want for years to come!
