Are you an artist with a great Creative City project idea, but you’re having trouble figuring out how to articulate it in your application? Are you looking for an opportunity to sharpen your grant writing skills? This workshop may be for you!


Denise Delgado, writer, artist, educator and consultant, along with Kim Szeto, Creative City Program Manager at NEFA, will co-lead a 3-hour grant writing workshop geared towards artists who are interested in applying for Creative City and sharpening their grant writing skills in general.

Denise has not only received a Creative City grant in our first cohort of artists, but has also served on one of our review panels for a subsequent round of Creative City applications. She also has years of experience successfully applying for grants as an individual artist and former grant writer for various non-profits. She will engage participants in small group discussions and writing activities aimed at helping you to refine project ideas, articulate artistic goals and process, develop a realistic budget for the Creative City application. Using the Creative City grant application as a teaching tool, we hope that artists will also leave this workshop feeling better equipped to apply for other opportunities as well.
