Grants Workshops

Vancouver Inter-Cultural Orchestra

In order to assist new and returning applicants in navigating the Arts & Culture Grants program, NVRC typically offers a number of workshop opportunities for support and guidance.  In 2021, due to ongoing restrictions on public gathering, we will be providing a range of virtual opportunities from streamed conference presentations to individualized zoom interviews with the Grants Program Officer.

2022 Arts & Culture Grants -- Information Sessions, Grants Workshops & Interviews

Information Sessions are intended to help new/potential grant applicants:

  • understand the rationale behind each of the different grant programs and funding streams available;
  • recognize basic eligibility criteria as they apply to potential applicants;
  • understand program-specific funding criteria as these apply to a range of proposed activities;
  • determine which of the available funding stream they should consider; and
  • understand the intake process, the timing of their application as well as basic application requirements.

Grants Workshops are intended to:

  • share tips on effective grant writing and budgeting;
  • offer general advice and coaching to help you succeed in the granting arena.

Applicant Interviews:      

Depending on the needs of the applicant, these individualized sessions provide one-on-one feedback on in-progress grant applications.
