Facilitated by Stephanie Vegh

Learn to clearly convey the ideas and techniques behind your artwork in this practical writing workshop with visual artist and writer Stephanie Vegh. This session will outline practical steps for preparing an artist statement and exhibition proposal, which participants will have the opportunity to practice during the hands-on portion of the workshop. Techniques for editing and finishing your writing will also be shared. This free workshop is part of our Professional Development Workshop series for Inc. members. Participants should be prepared to do some writing during the session, and are encouraged to bring notebooks or laptops. Free, all are welcome.
Before the workshop from 6:00-7:00 pm, join us for a Grant Information Session on the arts creation and presentation funding stream available to artists through Hamilton’s City Enrichment Fund. Led by Andrea Carvalho, the info session will highlight eligibility, applying online, budget details and general tips on preparing a strong application.
