Join Ana Fiore, Director of Artist Services at Lower Manhattan Cultural Council (LMCC), for a Q&A on Grant Writing.

Grant writers are hired for a reason: grants can be time consuming and carry implicit expectations that are hard to detect if it’s not your job. That said, understanding the process and a few key strategies and best practices can make grant writing much easier.

In the Grant Writing module on CreativeStudy, Fiore guides viewers through the six basic components of most grant proposals and general, practical tips on the application process through submission. With this advice, you’ll be ready to tackle your first grant application or complete your fifteenth with increased clarity and success.

This Q&A is designed to provide ease and comfort with grant writing over the long term; create an understanding of what it means to be a good fit; and answer questions on the most common components of a grant application.

As Director of Artist Services at LMCC, Ana Fiore oversees re-grant programs in support of community-based arts programming in Manhattan; artist residencies providing work space for creative development; the SU-CASA program, connecting artists with senior centers; and other artist service initiatives within the organization. The core of these programs is to increase the range of resources available to artists. Prior to LMCC, Ana aided fiscally sponsored artists at the New York Foundation for the Arts with a focus on demystifying the fundraising process. She has also served the Center for Performance Research, The Joyce, and Danspace Project.
