BEMAC Professional Development #2: Grant Writing with Nathan Sibthorpe

18/05/2023 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Calling all grant writers and grant seekers! Join us for a Professional Development Workshop focused on Grant Writing, led by seasoned expert Nathan Sibthorpe at the Queensland Multicultural Centre or online (via MS Teams) on Thursday, May 18th from 6:30pm.

In this workshop, you’ll learn the essential skills and strategies needed to write successful grant proposals. Nathan will guide you through the grant writing process, including how to write about your art, respond to funding opportunities, and shape your proposal with budgets and timelines.

Whether you’re surrounded in grants or new to the field, this workshop is designed to help you take your grant writing skills to the next level. Don’t miss out on this chance to learn from a serial application-writer and gain the skills you need to pursue funding as an artist, musician or creative.

Nathan Sibthorpe is a contemporary performance-maker and video designer based in Brisbane, Australia. He is best known as the director of Counterpilot – the award-winning collective of transmedia performance artists responsible for: Adrift (Metro Arts, 2022); C’est Bon Salon (Brisbane Festival, 2022); Avoidable Perils (Brisbane Festival & Darwin Festival, 2020); Truthmachine (Sydney Festival, Brisbane Festival & others, 2019-22); Statum (Brisbane Powerhouse & Flipside Circus, 2019); Crunch Time (Next Wave Festival & Metro Arts, 2018) and Spectate (Metro Arts, 2017).

Counterpilot received four awards at the 2019 Adelaide Fringe. Their signature work Crunch Time received the Lord Mayor’s Award for Best New Australian Work at the 2018 Matilda Awards, and their most recent work Adrift received the Judge’s Award for “pushing artistic boundaries” at the 2022 Matilda Awards. Nathan has been nominated for a further twelve Matilda Awards, receiving the award for Best AV Design for Blue Bones in 2017. In the same year, he was also the recipient of the Dr Don Batchelor Award for Drama Research at QUT. In 2022, Nathan received a Sydney Theatre Award for Best Production for Young People, with I’ve Been Meaning to Ask You.
