Creatives of Color Oregon (COCO): “Grant Writing for the People” presented by Ori Gallery
February 18 at 5:00 pm – 7:00 pmFree
Our monthly meetup for the BIPOC community (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) is now called Creatives of Color Oregon, or COCO for short! This new name better reflects the private nature of this virtual space, compared to the in-person Creatives of Color Collaborative we’ve hosted for the entire production community.
Thursday, February 18 | 5-7pm | Space is limited.
OMPA and Ori Art Gallery have teamed up to present a grant writing workshop for the BIPOC community (Black, Indigenous, People of Color). Get insight and advice from Leila Haile and Subashini Ganesan—two veteran grant writers who have served on numerous grant-selection committees. Learn how to take your grant writing application to the next level, or just get your mind wrapped around the basics.
In this class we’ll cover mission statements, the elements of a business plan, project planning, budget creation, research, and basic grant application tips in an accessible, radical, and chill atmosphere. There will be time for Q&A at the end of the session. The workshop will be recorded and made available online to BIPOC filmmakers.
RSVP for Zoom info. Space is limited.
Note: COCO is an event by and for communities of color.
