Join us for a Creative Links in-conversation exploring the art of writing a successful application, with Lilli Geissendorfer, Director, Jerwood Arts, Bryony Windsor, Relationship Manager, Arts Council England and David Crump, Head of Business Incubation at Cockpit Arts.

Funding and grant opportunities, residencies, studios and other career openings often require the completion of an application or the submission of a proposal that articulates your aptitude and abilities. This event will consider how can you best stand out and be successful when seeking to be selected. There will be the chance to join in the conversation and ask questions.
