Online Clinic – How to Apply for Funding with Neva Elliot (Ards & North Down only)

How to apply for funding

Among the many challenges that exist in the career of every artist is the need for funding. This clinic will allow you to get one-to-one advice on questions related to funding applications and is a follow up to the webinar from earlier in the day.

As we all know funding is a hugely competitive place and making the best application possible is key in standing a chance of making a successful application. It may seem overly complex at first sight, but using some simple best practice steps can remove some of the fear.
