2-Day Workshop, Securing Support for Your Long-Term Project

Saturday, September 12 & 19, 2015, 11:00 AM – 6:00 PM, both days

Join Mary Virginia Swanson for a two-part workshop designed for photographers who would like to learn how to secure funding for a long-term personal project through drafting a successful proposal and budget, as well as learn how to build awareness for that project. The workshop will also explore various types of funding, as well as different approaches to expanding your audience.

On the first day, Swanson will present an extensive illustrated lecture, which provides an overview of public, private, and corporate support; the role of a fiscal agent; and how to navigate funding data. In addition, participants will learn about the importance of broadening awareness for their projects via public presentations, websites, and print and social-media marketing. At the end of the first session, participants will be assigned the task of producing a statement about their project, a budget, and a short list of potential funding sources.

During the second session, the group will discuss each participant’s project documents. The websites of each participant will be projected for discussion on enhancing project presence. Lunch will be served both days.

Tuition: $500 ($450 for currently enrolled photography students and Aperture Members at the $250 level and above).

Sustaining Your Long-Term Project: Fundraising, Sponsorship, and Creative Focus

“Many photographers engage in creative projects that live within them for years, continuing work on them as funding allows.  Securing time and support on many levels is essential. In this seminar, Mary Virginia Swanson will describe the path to successful fundraising to support the completion and subsequent publication and exhibition of your photography projects. She will help artists understand how to research and connect with like-minded individuals, organizations and foundations who share a passion for your subject. The types of monetary grants available through corporate and private foundations and government agencies will be discussed, as well as the value of partnering with a fiscal agent for foundation support, in-kind donations and sponsorship. Swanson will share fundraising resources and describe her research methodology to secure financial support, allowing your photography project to reach the broadest possible audience.” Class ID: FC4
