GINAA (Grantwriting for Native American and Indigenous Artists)

A FREE 3-DAY INTENSIVE GRANT WRITING PROGRAM FOR NATIVE AMERICAN AND INDIGENOUS ARTISTS

Saturday, June 5, 2010 - Saturday, June 12, 2010 | 9:00 am

Galería will host a FREE 3-day intensive Grantwriting workshop to support the professional development of Native American and Indigenous artists. Over the course of three sessions, workshop participants will develop a grant proposal specific to Galeria’s Small Grants Program. Participants will request $1,000 to support a project that fits Galería’s Artistic Programs (see below). A peer review panel will award three $1,000 commission grants to artists or groups to implement their project. Selected projects will be included as part of Galería’s 2010-2011 public program calendar.

Please note that Galería’s Small Grants Program is ONLY available to grantwriting workshop participants who complete the full 3 day workshop.

 

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE:

Applicants should be a Native American artist or a Native American-lead project/organization based in the greater San Francisco Bay Area.

Native American describes people with indigenous North, Central and South American heritage as well as Native Hawaiians, Samoans, and the indigenous people of Guam (whether enrolled, federally or nationally recognized, or not). From the Discrimination By Omission: Issues of Concern for Native Americans in San Francisco, A Report of the San Francisco Human Rights Commission, August 23, 2007.

We request that applicants represent their Native heritage, tribal affiliations and the lineage of their traditional cultural practices with integrity in the grants application process.

 

WORKSHOP OUTCOMES:

- Increased knowledge in the fundamentals of grantwriting to develop competitive grant proposals to government and foundation sources.

- Three $1,000 grants to selected proposals.

- Public presentation of three projects at Galería during 2010-2011.

Since capacity for the grant writing workshop is limited to 15 attendees, projects will be selected based on their fit with Galería's programs. Projects should be event-based and fit for Galeria's programs. A project description should briefly explain (50-75 wds) what the project consists of, who is/are involved, and how you will allocate the $1000.

FOR EXAMPLE:
This proposal requests $1,000 to support the creation and exhibition of Border Stories, a multi-media installation combining photography and video by Juan B.. The installation will explore the stories of daily life on the US/Mexico border. Awarded funds will support the production of the artworks, publicity and an artist fee. (50 words)
