On Wednesday, January 24, QCA hosted an Under the Hood workshop on Project Planning. Under the Hood is a workshop series designed to improve artists skills in grant writing and marketing. This workshop was designed to help artists think through how to write a clear and efficient project plan that would be central to a competitive grant proposal. We were joined by visual artists, singer/songwriters, and performance-based artists looking to fine-tune their project plans in an effort to improve their grant proposal writing.


The workshop was facilitated by QCA Art Service Manager Molaundo Jones and joined by Joan Willette, writer and founder of the Enchanted Goddess Collective. Joan is a recent winner of the 2018 SU-CASA Artist-in-Residence grant program. Joan shared tips based on the project description that helped her win this year’s SU-CASA residency award. Attendees were invited to submit their project plans for feedback and had the opportunity to experience the critique of a project plan submitted by Queens-based filmmaker Danny Khan.
