I was asked to make a presentation to Arts Council about my application. What should I include in my presentation? How long should it be?
If you are invited to make a presentation, it is because the Artist in Residency Selection Committee has taken an interest in your project and wants to understand the details of how it will function. Your presentation should articulate how you envision your residency taking place, including information about your budget, timelines, a description of the work that you will undertake, and how you imagine you will be able to incorporate mentorship opportunities for our local artists within your residency. You will also be given time to ask clarifying questions to the Arts Council team, and for them to ask you questions, too.
If there are any details from your submitted proposal that the selections committee wants further explanation, they will let you know in the same email that serves to invite you to interview.
