Remember to follow the directions I provided in one of the earlier blogs. And I will try to add more information and sources as we go along. The most important thing is for you to be confident about your art and tell a little about it to your funder in your request letter or application.
It has taken a long time to gather the information but we think this is worth it.
And if you find this information useful, sign up for new alerts at the top of the page on the right. We will be adding posts often, so that will let you get the newest information. If you don't hear anything from us, check back often.
Also, there are links on the page to earlier posts which may be useful to you -- including one which gives step by step directions to submitting a grant.
Good luck, I know your work is awesome!
