Deadline looming for grant writing workshop

The registration deadline is Jan. 11 for the Nevada Arts Council workshop on creating successful grant proposals. The workshop will take place from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Jan. 22 at the Truckee River Lodge, 501 First Street, Reno. A $15 workshop fee includes lunch and workshop materials.

The Building a Competitive Grant: Project and Proposal Development workshop features Ellen Reed, senior librarian for the Clark County Library District Center for Grants Funding and Resources. Reed will concentrate on project planning, crafting compelling narratives, budget preparation and evaluation technique. Participants will learn how to create successful proposals through group exercises and “hands-on” learning.

Registration for the grant writing workshop also includes admission to one of two supplemental Nevada Arts Council Technical Assistance Workshops. Technical assistance workshops are scheduled Jan. 21 in Carson City and Jan. 23 in Reno. These workshops will introduce attendees to Nevada Arts Council programs, services and grants available to artists, educators and organizations, discuss changes and updates for specific grant categories, demonstrate the Culture Grants Online system and provide time for individual consultation with Nevada Arts Council staff.

For more information on these workshops contact Kellie O’Donnell or Wendy Felling at (775) 687-6680.

The Nevada Arts Council was founded in 1967 as a state agency charged with developing and promoting the arts in Nevada. Statewide programs include Artists Services, Arts in Education, Community Arts Development, Folklife Program and Grants. Council funds designated to support the work of Nevada artists, arts organizations and institutions are funded by the Nevada State Legislature, the National Endowment for the Arts and other public and private funds.
