Shunpike Workshop for Arts Nonprofits 1

How can digital storytelling help your nonprofit achieve its goals?

ChangeStream Media’s Sean Koenig will tackle that question as a panelist at a workshop facilitated by our fiscal sponsor, Shunpike. Here’s Shunpike’s description of the program:

Join us the evening of Monday, 4/29 for “Demystifying Grants” – an Arts Business Clinic workshop featuring a panel discussion and break-out sessions.

Tackling a grant application for the first time – or a familiar application for a project that’s still being developed – can be overwhelming. This workshop aims to provide practical skills to strengthen your team’s ability to confidently pursue the next grant opportunity. We’ll focus on three core elements of just about any grant application – the narrative, describing your group and project; the budget; and the project timeline – and how these elements must be working together for the application to succeed.

We’ll deliver information on those skills through a moderated conversation with several arts groups, directly followed by peer group break-out sessions. First, Shunpike Interim Executive Director Michelle Chiachiere will moderate a conversation featuring members of: ChangeStream Media, a digital storytelling nonprofit; the filmmakers behind documentary “The Girl Who Knew Too Much”; and The Satori Group, a theatre ensemble. We’ll uncover what has worked for these groups – and what hasn’t – as they share their experience navigating the world of grantwriting. Real world experience and examples will lay the groundwork for our conversation.

During the second half of the workshop, we will break into facilitated peer groups to dig deeper, and you’ll have the opportunity to address pieces of your own narrative, budget and timelines.
