The webinar, #SHOWMETHEMONEY will run for an hour with plenty of opportunities to have questions answered.
Presenters will run through grants that are currently open through Arts Queensland, the Australia Council and the federal Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Communications as well as some smaller foundations which support the arts.
They’ll also cover hot tips for increasing your chance of grant writing success. Why it’s important to truly have your head around each funding program’s guidelines and criteria, how to put together a compelling project description and how to cost your project.

Presenter, Samantha Morris said some people feel overwhelmed at the grant writing process, but it’s easy to break it down into manageable chunks.
“Government funding bodies are really clear about why they exist and what they’re trying to achieve,” she said.
“The role of a grant writer really is to give the people what they want.”
“This workshop will take music businesses and musicians through the fundamentals of good grant writing,” Sam said. “And anyone who attends will have a much clearer picture of whether their project is ready for an external funder.”
