Financial plan for art project funding application
Earlier this year, we organised an online information session that focused on the challenges of writing a successful project proposal for arts funding applications. In the following session, we will look at how to write a budget proposal, which is mandatory when applying for art project funding. Creating an overall budget for your project and understanding the requirements for an acceptable budget proposal that each funding agency defines individually can be overwhelming. At the nextonline information session, our guest expert Nadine Lorenz will help you face this challenge. Last year, Nadine Lorenz spoke about managing finances in relation to acquired funding. Now she will discuss what to consider when drafting a budget for an arts funding application in Germany, with a focus on Berlin.
