Expansion Arts Program: Grant Writing Workshop
Supported by a collaboration between the Rhode Island Foundation, the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts, and the Rhode Island Council for the Humanities, the Expansion Arts Program (EAP) offers funding and organizational assistance to community-based, culturally diverse arts and cultural organizations. To support the capacity building efforts of the EAP grantees, Alison co-designed and presented a 3-hour workshop with her Third Eye Cultural Collaborative colleagues to help grantees better understand the grant making process. Participants discussed ways to navigate the traditional grantmaking system, learned how grantmakers are working to reduce funding gaps and disparities to address the cultural equity issues in philanthropy, investigated creative models that are emerging to support artists and organizations and went through the process of looking at their organization’s traits and systems and developed a practical plan to begin to work with grantmakers.
