Artists sometimes struggle to find funding opportunities in their field, as most foundations are only capable of funding nonprofit organizations rather than individuals. What are the best methods for artists to find viable grant opportunities, and to position themselves in the best possible light for obtaining those opportunities?

Join us for a conversation to outline the types of funding that artists can access to support their creative projects, and the right resources to ameliorate the process, such as fiscal sponsorship. Our guests will also offer advice on navigating grant applications, what to expect after a grant has been awarded, and how individual artists can best position themselves for success.



  • Gain a better understanding of eligibility requirements for artists
  • Learn about fiscal sponsorship and other available resources for artists
  • Discover techniques for successful applications for arts grants
