Recap: Grant-ED 101 with BIEDO in Biggenden

Last month I headed to Biggenden with Team BIEDO to facilitate the “Grant-ED 101: Creating a ‘grant ready’ project” workshop for community and small business. It was my first visit to the North Burnett since taking the family to the Gayndah Orange Festival and it didn’t disappoint - we stopped along the way for road side pumpkins and to chat to the crew droving a mob of over 1300 head cattle through the region (6 months on the road and counting).

The workshop attracted small business owners, volunteers from community groups and representatives from the not-for-profit sector who traveled from around the North and South Burnett and as far as Bundaberg to attend - a big thank you to those who attended and to BIEDO for inviting me to take part.

Projection & Animation Workshop - Kingaroy

Last weekend I had the pleasure of taking part in the Projection Art & Animation workshop, an intensive two-day program which culminated in a screening of moving image works by 13 regional artists on the iconic peanut silos in Kingaroy. Organised by the Central Queensland Regional Arts Services Network in partnership with South Burnett Arts, South Burnett Regional Council and Bega/Peanut Company of Australia, it was fantastic to develop new work under the mentorship of artist Donna Maree Robinson.

It was great to take part in this program as an artist participant as opposed to being in a coordinating role, and to set aside a weekend of designated creative time to make new work using stop-start animation techniques in iMotion.

Workshop announcement: Creating a "grant ready" project

I’m pleased to be teaming up with Kristy Frahm (CEO, Burnett Inland Economic Development Organisation) to co-facilitate this workshop as part of BIEDO’s Grant-ED program. If you’re in or around the Burnett Inland, I would love to see you there!

This free workshop is for community groups, not-for-profits, entrepreneurs, businesses and individuals who are looking to be "grant ready"! This workshop in the Grant-ED series will look at developing an idea or project from A to B, so that you're prepared when the next grant opportunity arises.

If you're new to grant writing, looking to hone your grant writing skills, or maybe you've experienced "grant burn out" following a last minute grant application - this workshop will add some tips and tricks to your tool kit before your next submission!

Cost? Free!

When? Thursday 13th June 9 - 11:30am (morning tea provided)

Where? 80 Gore Street, Murgon (BIEDO HQ)
