The Midwest Art Conservation Center Presents Workshops on Grant
Writing for Beginning and Advanced Conservation Projects

These two workshops are presented with the goal of coaching
participants through the grant application process to completion of
the actual application.

In the beginning level workshop, participants will learn where and
how to locate funding sources; how to understand conservation grant
protocol and the review process; how to conduct an internal review
to present your institution and collection as the best candidate for
funding; how to develop an achievable project; how to write a
practical proposal; how to write a realistic budget; options for
raising "matching funds," and what to do when you receive grant
funding.  The workshop instructor, an experienced grant writer, will
provide direct assistance on draft proposals both during and after
the workshop until the application is completed.  This workshop will
take place from 10am-5pm each day at the Minneapolis Public Library
on February 8-9, 2007

The advanced level workshop will be taught by MACC staff on the
first day of this two-day workshop, and consultant Barbara Davis
will teach the second day.  The instructors will present a
comprehensive workshop on grant-writing for advanced
conservation-related projects such as: HVAC System upgrades; major
storage renovations or additions, Object-by-Object detailed surveys
of collections; actual conservation treatments and other large scale
or large budget preservation and conservation projects. The second
day of the workshop taught by Barbara Davis will concentrate on
writing grant proposals to private funding sources for matching
funds. The goal of the workshop is for participants to leave the
session with a realistic and practical understanding of advanced
grant writing for large scale or large budget preservation and
conservation project proposals.  Preservation Services staff will
then follow-up with participants who are developing full grant
applications.  This workshop will take place from 9:30am-4:30pm at
the Landmark Center in St. Paul, Minnesota on April 19-20, 2007.

Registration fees for these two-day workshops will be $195 for MACC
members and $235 for non-members.  Staff and volunteers from
institutions with a total operating budget below $50,000 per year
qualify for a reduced fee in the amount of $130 for MACC members and
$200 for non-members.  Fees for students (those currently enrolled
in Undergraduate or Graduate Study Programs, including interns and
fellows) will be $80 for each two-day workshop. MACC accepts credit
card payments.
