Since 2008, LMCC has presented a suite of free workshops and intensive seminars on timely issues in the areas of business proficiency, artistic practice, and community engagement. All of our programs are designed specifically for artists living and working in New York City and offer opportunities to foster learning and dialogue, as well as create robust and expanding networks for participants.
LMCC’s core fundraising series is designed to help artists develop knowledge and skills in raising the resources to support their practice. The series features workshops on five key areas of fundraising, including: the funding ecosystem, grantwriting, budgeting, work sample dos and don’ts, and cultivating individual donors.
Each summer select workshops are offered in conjunction with LMCCs Manhattan Arts Grant program outreach schedule.
In support of the health and safety of our communities, LMCC is offering all Fundraising Fundamentals workshops virtually this summer. All workshops are free and open to all. Scroll down to RSVP!
