The Alliance for the Arts in Research Universities and the Institute for Creativity, Arts, and Technology (ICAT) at Virginia Tech are hosting a series of free, interactive Zoom workshops to learn about and discuss funding strategies and opportunities in the arts and design.

The first workshop, “Federal Funding,” will be held on March 18, from 3 to 4:30 p.m. EST. Moderated by Ben Knapp, director of ICAT, panelists for the session will include Melissa Menzer, program analyst for the National Endowment for the Arts, and Jesse Johnston, associate director for Information Strategy at Mcubed and the senior research development officer at the University of Michigan. Johnston was previously senior program officer for preservation and access and acting records officer at the National Endowment for the Humanities.

During the first hour of the workshop, panelists will discuss critical aspects for successful proposals, potential avenues for funding, and ways to strengthen future proposals. The remainder of the workshop will be devoted to answering participants' particular questions. 

Register online for the workshop by March 15 at 5 p.m. EST.
