The dark arts of grant writing are revealed through a two-part webinar (online learning experience) designed to shed light on some of the obstacles dotting the somewhat confusing pathway you need to tread in order to get your project funded.

To coincide with the launch of his new book, “Learn to swim with sharks: the secret art of grant writing” (Oct. 2019), JD Smith will host an introduction to the grant writing process, including an in depth analysis of how to structure a project and understand the nuances of the actual grant application itself.

You will not be disappointed.

With nearly 14 years of experience in research development, mostly at Goldsmiths, University of London, JD Smith aims to take the knowledge learned in the ‘locked up ivory towers of academia’ and impart it to those that don’t necessarily have access to such resources as those offered by a major university.

The webinars are open to everyone. No matter their level of knowledge of the funding arena.

The session will cover an overview of project development, from the basics of ‘What is grant funding?’ to ‘Who has the money?’ and ‘What do I need the money for?’…Grant Writing 101 if you wish.

Then we will breakdown a project application structure and analyze the subsections that enable a project to develop, and more importantly, you will learn how to concisely convey the information so that the funder knows exactly what its giving you the money for. Grant writing: making a good application, great.

If you are an artist, an arts organisation, a charity or community group, CSO, NGO, academic researcher, PhD student, or any individual interested in getting a grant for a project (even solar panels for the roof of your house!) then this session is for you.
