Grant Writing Workshops with Olivia Junell
at Experimental Sound Studio
Get help with your grants this fall! ESS’s Director of Development & Outreach Olivia Junell will meet with artists in 20 minute sessions to provide feedback and consultation on grant writing. These sessions are especially timely for the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events Individual Artist Program* grant (opens October 22, due December 5), however she is happy to discuss any grant that you have in the works.
