According to the Crossover Study by The Arts Economy Initiative Project and the Humphrey Institute of Public Affairs, University of Minnesota, many artists develop their work and careers by working in the nonprofit arena – community based arts organizations, colleges and universities, and museums.
Artists working with nonprofit organizations are visual artists, photographers, musicians, dancers, writers, and theater artists who use art production, performance and education to introduce communities to the transformative power of the arts. Artists not only work with and for arts-based organizations, but also frequently create and helm them.
This workshop will teach artists how to work with nonprofit organizations to raise funds for exhibitions, publications, classes and workshops, and special projects. Artists will learn how to become a member of the fundraising team and the steps nonprofit organizations use in applying for grants to support programs and projects.
Instructor Linda Vallejo, a practicing professional artist, has worked in the nonprofit arena as a grantwriter, curator, and program coordinator for several decades with Self Help Graphics and Art, Los Angeles, CA; 18th Street Art Center, Santa Monica, CA: Otis School of Art and Design Public Practice MFA Program, Los Angeles, CA; and Communities Create, a mental health arts-based non-profit organization in Los Angeles.
This course is strictly limited to 10 participants.
