Eager to document your artistic processes, but struggling to do so on a budget? This workshop is designed to help you gain confidence and develop strategies for documenting your artistic process and products in order to create artistic samples and digital collateral that highlights your arts organization's strengths. You'll have an opportunity to review and discuss samples and learn how to make the most of documentation tools you already have.


This workshop is geared toward nonprofit administrators who are involved in documenting their organizations' artistic work for marketing, archival, and grant purposes. Current or prospective grantees to the Organizational Grant Program (OGP) or Community Impact Arts Grant (CIAG) who want to brush up their artistic samples are especially encouraged to join us.

Pro tip: Strong documentation processes now = better artistic samples later. Get a head start before OGP and CIAG applications open in the fall!
