Event description

Description

Always the first Wednesday of the month from 6:30-7:30pm, WAW is a series of important professional development topics for artists of all disciplines. Register for one or register for the whole unit. Each session is $5, or get access to all sessions for the year with an Amplify Arts' Artist Membership for $60!

All sessions are free for UNO students with a valid student ID. Special thanks to UNO's College of Communication, Fine Arts and Media and their Center for Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Franchising for making this partnership possible.

2019's first WAW unit will cover what artists need to build a solid packet of materials when applying to grant, exhibition, and residency opportunities. Participants can expect to revise and refine their artist statements, elevator pitches, resumes and CVs, work documentation, and project proposals. Session leaders will work with participants to help demystify application processes and what juries look for when reviewing and evaluating application materials.

January 2nd - Artist Statements & Elevator Pitches w/ Amanda Smith

  • No matter what opportunities you’re looking for, a solid artist statement is an essential part of any application. Join Amplify Arts Artist Support Grant recipient, Amanda Smith to learn more about what makes a compelling statement and how you can use parts of that statement to develop a succinct elevator pitch sure to pique interest in your work.

February 6th - Resumes & CVs w/ Amanda Smith

  • What’s the difference between an artist resume and CV? How do you build each and which do you submit when applying for grants, residencies, jobs, fairs, and other opportunities? Amplify Arts Artist Support Grant recipient, Amanda Smith will lead WAW attendees through all the ins and outs of developing and updating comprehensive artist resumes and CVs that effectively communicate your experience, skills, and qualifications.

March 6th - Documentation for Websites, Social Media, and Work Samples w/ Amanda Smith

  • Documenting work can be tricky for artists of any discipline. Equipment, lighting, angles, perspective, post production workflow, and achieving high quality results on the cheap can all pose their own particular sets of problems. Join Amplify Arts Artist Support Grant recipient, Amanda Smith and DoSpace staff to learn more about DoSpace’s resources for artists and get some helpful hints and tips that will make your documentation of 2D, 3D, and performance-based work application ready.

April 3rd - Project Proposals 101 w/ Julie Smith

  • What goes into writing a strong project proposal? How do timelines and budgets look when your proposal is mostly fleshed out but there are still a few unknowns? Join One Omaha director Julie Smith as she lays out everything you need to know about writing a proposal that can help secure the resources and support you need to see your project through to completion. Please note: to be eligible for Amplify Arts $10,000 2019 Public Impact Grant, applicants must attend at least one Project Proposal workshop. Applicants who have previously received support from Amplify in the form of an Artist Support Grant or Public Impact Grant must wait a full year after their grant term has ended to reapply.
