Join Coley Curry and Ruby Morales to learn more about grantwriting and funding opportunities! The Arizona Commission on the Art’s Artist Investment Program has partnered with The Drop Dance Studio in Tucson and Jukebox Grounds in Mesa to sponsor FREE grant writing workshops for Arizona artists working in all disciplines.

As past recipients of the Arts Commission’s Research and Development Grant for artists, Coley and Morales offer first-hand insights into how to craft successful artist grant applications!

Note: These sessions are intended specifically for individuals applying for artist grants.

Those whose primary interest is in grants for organizations, arts learning programs, and festivals are encouraged to watch for future workshops and info sessions specific to such opportunities.

In-person Grantwriting Sessions

In-person workshops will be followed by an open dance session with DJ and professional videography services. Dancers can use the footage for work samples for future grant applications or for personal use. Workshops are open to anyone who is interested in learning more about grant writing and arts funding opportunities here in AZ! Come learn, hang out, and get down!
