Art League Houston, Main Gallery

Houston, TX 77006
Fresh Arts’ Executive Director Jenni Rebecca Stephenson and professional composer and musician, Jerry Ochoa of Two Star Symphony, provide an overview of strategies and resources for individual artists seeking funds to support their professional art career.
This workshop covered: identifying grant opportunities (including several key local opportunities), increasing accessibility to additional funding through fiscal sponsorship, and securing individual contributions and institutional support. The workshop will also provide tips for creating and managing successful crowd-funding campaigns and offer examples of how local artists have successfully raised money for their projects. (Specifics on grant-writing and crafting proposals are NOT covered in this workshop, but will be covered later in Fresh Arts’ workshop series.)
This workshop applies to all types of individual artists including those in the visual, performing, filmmaking, literary, and multi-disciplinary fields.
