1:30-4:30  Writing Professional Applications 
Presentation by Melanie Colosimo
Although our experience within the art community varies, we are all periodically confronted with the need to prepare an application for an exhibition, grant, or residency opportunity. Melanie will take us through the components of these applications, how they differ from one another, and from other types of writing (journalistic, business, scientific) with which we might be more familiar. She will teach us how to craft a project proposal, differentiate between an artist’s CV and an artist’s resume, and what is looked for in artist statements, artist bios, and the importance of visual materials.

Melanie Colosimo, is currently Director of the Anna Leonowens Gallery at NSCAD University in Halifax. You can learn more about Melanie and her work and experience at her website melaniecolosimo.com.
