Lobby Chats: “I got the grant! What now?” For DIY Producers
October 14 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Hosted by The AFC
More artists and collectives than ever have been applying for and receiving grants to create work during the pandemic. As a result, many of us have to learn what it means to produce without the support of a larger organization – from project management to contracts to protecting our personal finances and much more. Becoming a DIY producer comes with a lot of excitement and validation but also financial stress and uncertainty. This panel discussion will be helpful for anyone new to producing and managing project grants, as well as to those who have been doing it for a while but still feel like they have questions.
