felt :: feutre canada On-Line Workshop Development Grant 2022
felt :: feutre canada has established two grants to be awarded to felt :: feutre canada members in 2022.
The aim of the On-Line Workshop Development Grant is to assist teaching members to create an online workshop. The grant can be used to purchase equipment to create video recordings for the workshop, create a presentation platform or financially assist in the hiring of a videographer or other professional assistance to achieve the transition to on-line teaching.
One $600.00 award will be given in each of the following two categories:
Emerging Teacher: This applicant will be completely new to the experience of teaching online. They will have a workshop idea that they wish to take on-line and feel they could succeed given access to the necessary equipment or professional videographer.
Established Teacher: Someone with some experience on-line (PDF, Zoom, YouTube, Art Talks or other forms of on-line presence) who wishes to expand their technical videography and online presentation through equipment, presentation platform or professional assistance upgrades.
All grant funds are to be spent on new equipment or upgrades in equipment, online tools or technical assistance for a specific project.
Funds are not available for PDF only or live only workshops, although these components may also be included in the class
