Rasmuson Foundation and partners are hosting virtual workshops to help Alaska artists apply for a 2022 Individual Artist Award. The workshops will help artists put their best application forward in this highly competitive process. Awardees receive recognition for their art, opportunities for professional development and grants of $7,500 or $18,000, depending on the type of award.
At the workshops, artists will gain skills in crafting artist statements and resumes, preparing work samples and more — useful beyond this particular award. The Foundation will share recordings of the workshops for those who cannot attend.
We also have gathered additional materials to help artists put their best application forward. Our artist toolkit is here and more information about the awards is here. The application deadline is March 1, 11:59 p.m.
