Sheffield Creative Guild Funding Workshops: Where to look for funding
Come and learn about the various funding options available nationally and regionally.
If you’re an individual artist or creative this workshop will help you focus in on the funding, both national and regional, options that might be available for your particular project or initiative. Delivered by Pamela Johnson, this workshop will be particularly useful to individuals who are applying for funding for the very first time or for a brand new project.
After the workshop, our follow-up peer support session will answer any additional questions and you’ll be able to share the details of where you’ve been looking for funding, any interesting pots you’ve come across and any upcoming deadlines to watch out for.
Pamela has worked in the cultural sector since 1990 and has been training, advising and supporting artists, arts and heritage organisations for over 20 years. She has held practitioner posts, but also worked as a funding distributor and grant application assessor. Her more recent consultancy work has seen her delivering successful fundraising consultancy for artists, theatre companies and venues and delivering training with a hands-on and creative approach that is rooted in practical experience. Her extensive knowledge and experience of the arts funding environment has resulted in demand to develop strategies, create and write funding applications and lead on evaluation and reporting requirements.

Sheffield Creative Guild // Funding workshops
At last year’s AGM you told us that you’d like more support in creating funding bids for your various projects, so that’s exactly what we’re going to do with our new programme of funding themed workshops. We’ll take you through the stages of sourcing funding, putting in your application and evaluating your project. This will be presented by experts in the field in three individual workshops with follow-up drop in sessions available for anyone looking to delve deeper into their actual funding bids and get group and expert feedback.
These workshops are being delivered thanks to the support of Arts Fundraising & Philanthropy.
