NSU’s Alvin Sherman Library To Host Grant Writing Workshop Jan. 19

Ft. Lauderdale (Davie), Florida – The Alvin Sherman Library, Research and Information Technology Center at Nova Southeastern University (NSU) and the Broward County Cultural Division are hosting a workshop on Jan. 19 to assist artists of all disciplines with preparing effective proposals for project-based grant funding.

Participants will learn how to:

  • Research databases at the Alvin Sherman Library for grants and resources;
  • Develop an artist’s biography and artist’s statement;
  • Prepare an audience profile (identify the qualities and characteristics of audiences attracted by one’s art work and utilize the profile in the proposal process);
  • Create a proposal description based on the project’s vision;
  • Develop a project proposal budget using a case study model that will explore the budget development process;
  • Provide guidance on how to effectively prepare work samples.

Facilitator Luz Rodriguez, of the New York Foundation Center, is a seasoned fundraising professional, educator, and artist who combines her artistic abilities with her knowledge of U.S. philanthropy to guide and inspire artists of all genres to equip them with the information and tools they need to bring their project visions to reality. Together with Greg Sidberry, Reference Outreach Instructional Librarian at the Alvin Sherman Library, the workshop will provide artists with direct access to the library’s resources regarding national grant and opportunities.

The workshop will take place at 9 a.m. in room 4009 of the Alvin Sherman Library, 3100 Ray Ferrero Boulevard, on the Davie Campus of NSU.

The workshop fee of $25 includes resource materials. Checks should be made payable to: The Cultural Foundation of Broward. Credit cards are accepted online at www.co.broward.fl.us/arts. Hourly parking is available ($1/hour) next to the Alvin Sherman Library. Directions to the library, visit http://www.nova.edu/library/about/mapdir.html
