Art after Disaster- Panel Discussion with CERF+

November 3, 12-1:30 OR 5-6:30 pm (Choose either session)
Canyon Theater, Boulder Public Library, 1001 Arapahoe Ave

FREE - More information and Register here. Walk-ins also welcome.

What will happen if a disaster strikes your studio? In Boulder County, fires and floods have taken a significant toll on artists. Personal challenges, such as illness, can also threaten your valued career. Are there ways to be prepared and resources to help you recover? Where can you find information to help you navigate an effective path to recovery?


The Craft Emergency Relief Fund (CERF+) will be coming to Boulder and joining with local artists, government agencies and non-profits to bring you answers to those questions.  

A free Studio Protector, The Artist’s Guide to Emergencies, will be available to the first 100 artists to register. Snacks will be available at both presentations. These presentations are brought to you by BCAA, Open Studios, and the Boulder Arts & Crafts Gallery.

GrantSpeak - A Workshop in 2 Parts

Wednesdays, November 9 and November 16
Conference Room, Community Foundation Serving Boulder County, 1123 Spruce St, Boulder 

Registration/networking 11-11:30pm; Workshops 11:30 - 1pm

Presenter Kathy Kucsan of Integrity Arts will offer a frank discussion about the funding potential of your organization (or project). She will also give you the tools and tricks to present a strong grant application in the fastest, most practical way. Material from Part 1 will inform Part 2, so you are encouraged to attend both sessions (but you are welcome to attend just one).

Part 1 (November 9) will be in a seminar format with discussion on how to:

  • search for grants in a competitive funding landscape
  • craft your "ask"
  • streamline and improve your grants process
  • answer any other questions you have

Part 2 (November 16) will be a “Grants Clinic.” Using a real-life model for grant review, we will evaluate three different grant applications with a mock grant panel. (This workshop includes pre-meeting homework of reading the mock grant applications before we meet. These will be emailed to you after you register.)
