Points of Access: A to Z Grantwriting and Proposals

Organized by CAAM and Art + Practice (A+P), the Points of Access series continues with a focus on artists and their need to build a sustained practice. CAAM and A+P welcome artists of all stages and genres to explore the many ways to navigate the art world at each point in their careers, and the lessons learned. Join us for the second program in this series at Art + Practice with Linda Vallejo, artist and creator of A to Z Grantwriting with Linda Vallejo. Vallejo will cover the basics and provide artists with tools for developing artist fellowship/residence proposals so they can be ready to apply to any opportunity that comes their way. No prior knowledge is required and all are welcome.

Youth participants will engage with the history of the past to create history of their future by reimagining their identity and presence in society. We will explore alternative documentary methods and archival practices to include narratives often erased from these records. Youth will work in pairs to discuss the meaning and importance of self preservation as a radical tool to reimagine and manifest the stories they desire to leave behind. Engaging in both spiritual and critical dialogue of the past, present, and future, youth will produce portraits using prisms to create an alternative narrative and image. These photographs will be used to build a tangible archive and a digital archive on Instagram.

This workshop is best suited for participants ages 16 to 24 and will take place at 4339 Leimert Boulevard, Los Angeles, 90008. Please RSVP to reserve a spot here.
