For presenters: Free professional development webinars
Ontario Presents has partnered with Atlantic Presenters to deliver a FREE webinar series designed to give access quality professional development to arts presenters (from volunteer organizations to mid-size presenters).
Good news! All the webinars are aimed at a beginner level to create a friendly, non-intimidating learning environment. There is no cost to participate. You can sign up for some webinars or the entire series. Webinar recordings are also available online for anyone who cannot attend the live broadcast.
January 28, 2015, from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m.
Writing for Success by Cheryl Ewing
Go to www.ontariopresents.ca/webinar-series to sign up.
(In February, they will offer three webinars on Volunteer engagement.)
“The objective of this webinar is to provide an approach to grant writing that will increase your opportunity for a successful outcome. The aim is to enable the participants to feel confident that they can approach a grant with an understanding of what is expected of them and how they can talk about their project in a way that will be of interest to the funder."
This webinar will include a template for a background document that provides much of the organizational materials that you will need to have handy, as well as a checklist to follow so that your approach to each grant is well organized.
