Learn more about funding your scholarship, creative practice, or special projects at a unique convening – Strategies for Arts and Humanities Grantseeking: A CUNY Town Hall on Thursday, November 15 from 8:45am – 3:00pm in the Elebash Recital Hall at the CUNY Graduate Center. The CUNY arts and humanities community will come together to share stories of successful approaches and troubleshoot obstacles surrounding fundraising in the humanistic and creative fields, with a wide-ranging discussion for faculty of all career stages and graduate students. The Town Hall will feature your faculty peers and fundraising experts from across CUNY in panel conversation about their insights and best practices, with audience participation welcome.

Two proven themes will focus the dialogue:
1) how partnerships of all shapes and sizes can be leveraged for grant success, and
2) how to seek out and cultivate funding decision-makers, with a deliberate plan for self-advocacy and relationship management.

RSVP now!

A light breakfast will begin the day, and complimentary lunch will also be provided to attendees. Please direct any questions to appsevents@rfcuny.org. This convening is jointly organized by the CUNY Graduate Center Office of Research & Sponsored Programs, the CUNY Graduate Center Foundation, and Research Foundation CUNY.
