Supporting Individual Artists Coffee Chat: Innovative Funding Strategies for Artists
Recorded On: 05/14/2020
About this Coffee Chat
Americans for the Arts is excited to bring you a monthly series of informal discussions about supporting individual artists. As part of Americans for the Arts ongoing program, Arts Administrators Essentials: Supporting Individual Artists, these monthly "Coffee Chats" are your opportunity to hear from individuals and organizations in the arts and culture field that support individual artists as part of their everyday work. Each month, we will bring you a new topic to support your work with artists.
Our topic for May 2020 will be about funding and fundraising strategies for artists.
Join Katya Grokhovsky, artist, curator, educator, a Founding Artistic Director of The Immigrant Artist Biennial (TIAB), and former Kickstarter Creator in Residence, for an interactive workshop where she will discuss how to create funding strategies for artists through a combination of grants, crowdfunding and private fundraising.
This project is supported in part by the Emily Hall Tremaine Foundation.
