Many photographers engage in creative projects that live within them for years, continuing work on them as funding allows, while others are intent on finishing a specific project that requires travel or other resources for completion.  No matter what the parameters are for growing and concluding your project, securing time and support on many levels is essential. In this seminar, Mary Virginia Swanson will describe the path to successful fundraising to support the completion and subsequent publication & exhibition of your photography projects.  She will help artists understand how to conduct effective research and connect with like-minded individuals, organizations and foundations who share a passion for their subject. The types of monetary grants available through corporate & private foundations and government agencies will be discussed, as well as the value of partnering with a fiscal agent for foundation support, in-kind donations, and sponsorship.  Throughout the lecture, Ms. Swanson will share resources for fundraising and describe her research methodology to secure financial support for your photography project to reach the broadest possible audience.

THESE SEMINARS ARE FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC, BUT SPACE IS LIMITED, ADVANCE REGISTRATION ENCOURAGED. RSVP
