The Gaming application can often be difficult to understand and navigate – both for long-time applicants, as well as newcomers to the process. Gaming’s guidelines and priorities are unlike other funders, and can often be challenging to decipher (especially as they apply to arts organizations!). 

For all those who need the “101” on successfully applying for a BC Gaming Community Grant, this is the workshop for you – Mary Ann will translate what Gaming really means in their guidelines language, identify ‘red flag’ language to avoid, and go through the best ways to make your application speak directly to what Gaming is looking for. The workshop will provide a clear road-map to creating a successful application – for both first-timers and long-time grant recipients.
