The Arts & Humanities Alliance of Jefferson County, or AHA! will host a grant writing workshop on Tuesday, Nov. 15 at 6 p.m. at Robert C. Byrd Center for Legislative Studies on the campus of Shepherd University. The West Virginia Division of Culture and History in collaboration with the West Virginia Commission on the Arts will conduct the free grant writing workshops.

The state arts staff will offer a grant writing overview with program deadlines, tips and timelines for success and procedures to be used for an application. They also will discuss new initiatives and programs to support local arts projects, changes in current guidelines affecting fiscal year 2013 applicants and how to plan for grant success.

Arts administrators, arts educators, arts volunteers, artists and art patrons are invited to participate in these practical and informal sessions. AHA! encourages all interested participants to take advantage of this opportunity to learn about potential funding opportunities.
