Hannah Justad, Glasgow CAN's Executive Director will lead attendees through how best to approach searching for funders and applying for funding for a participatory arts project. Glasgow CAN's own Commissioned Projects application process will be used as an example along with Creative Scotland and other relevent funders. This workshop is aimed at attendees with some experience of applying for funding but who are looking for new avenues and to learn from peers. Attendees are encouraged to bring along applications that they may be currently working on. The group will explore what opportunties are out there currently and how to approach making an application. The workshop will be primarily peer learning and task based. Time will be given for attendees to share their experinces and struggles and for the group to give one another advice and guidance.
