This work­shop, deliv­ered by the Media Arts Net­work of Ontario / Réseau des arts medi­a­tiques de l’Ontario (MANO/RAMO) will give you the resources to finan­cially man­age your artis­tic projects.

Basic book­keep­ing tools and tips will enable you to keep orga­nized and pro­duce records for grant report­ing and finan­cial con­trol. The finan­cial sec­tion will be fol­lowed by a ses­sion focused on project man­age­ment for effec­tive plan­ning, exe­cu­tion and report­ing with an overview of pub­lic sec­tor grant writ­ing.
