NextStage with Kathy Hsieh

CONVERSATION: Kathy Hsieh will share from her years of experience in the grant and producing world how to do a true self evaluation of what your skills are so you can feel confident as you apply for opportunities. We’ll discuss how to find joy through the process of applying and how to seize an application process as an opportunity to create a work plan that will benefit you whether you receive funding or not. It’s all about your mindset. She’ll also share insight about what to expect throughout and after the process. A joy-filled conversation to help you discern what might be the right path for you.

NextStage with Sara Porkalob

PRACTICAL: Representing yourself and your craft in ways that feel authentic and empowering on paper can be difficult. Sara Porkalob will lead us through this workshop that will use immersive storytelling exercises to mine individual experience, objectives, and tactics to develop personalized, specific language that you can use for grant writing, cover letters, artistic statements, and other such documents. Being aware of what you need to flourish and being ready to receive with open us to our full potential to thrive and grow.
