The West Virginia Division of Culture and History in collaboration with the West Virginia Commission on the Arts will conduct statewide grant writing workshops during December and January. The arts section of the Division will present this free series of workshops with the help of local host organizations in six locations.
The arts staff will offer a grant writing overview with program deadlines, tips and timelines for success, and procedures to be used for an application. They also will discuss new initiatives and programs to support local arts projects, changes in current guidelines affecting fiscal year 2012 applicants, and how to plan for grant success.
Arts administrators, arts educators, arts volunteers, artists and art patrons are invited to participate in these practical and informal sessions.
The grant writing workshops are the result of the “Listening Tour” sessions conducted statewide by the arts staff in September.
“With the help of local hosts, we can reach the most people and have more impact in each community. We appreciate these hosts for assisting with bringing this much-needed workshop to their communities,” said Jeff Pierson, director of arts for the Division. A complete list of the workshop sites is attached.
Participants are requested to pre-register for the sessions at least one week prior to the session date. To pre-register or for more information about the grant writing workshops and the programs of the arts section and the West Virginia Commission on the Arts, contact Debbie Haught, community arts coordinator for the Division, at (304) 558-0240, ext. 714, or e-mail her at email@example.com.
With the leadership of the West Virginia Department of Education and the Arts, Kay Goodwin, cabinet secretary, the West Virginia Division of Culture and History brings together the state’s past, present and future through programs and services in the areas of archives and history, the arts, historic preservation and museums. Its administrative offices, led by Commissioner Randall Reid-Smith, are located at the Culture Center in the State Capitol Complex in Charleston, which also houses the state archives and state museum. The Culture Center is West Virginia’s official showcase for the arts. The agency also operates a network of museums and historic sites across the state.
