**The first 3 workshops of this series are FREE and open to all.**
This project is designed and facilitated by Adriana Sánchez Alexander, a writer, educator, and cultural worker from Santa Ana, CA.
The Santa Ana Grants Equity project launched May 20, 2019 at Makara Center for the Arts. SAGE is a monthly workshop from May-July, culminating in a five-week SAGE Intensive in August. Participants will also get a certificate of completion and access to "Grants Office Hours" for the remainder of 2019.
The SAGE Project will help participants identify funding opportunities, write successful grant narratives, determine and measure outcomes, and get on a path towards creating sustainable revenue for their project. The goal is to get participants truly submission-ready for 2020, with practical advice and direction on a pathway that fits their idea. This project is intended for artists, individuals, or organizations/collectives who are working in arts and culture in Santa Ana, who come from communities that have been traditionally underrepresented in terms of grants funding, and who have a project idea they would like to work on. Participants do NOT need to have nonprofit status as their goal; this workshop series is also for people that want to make it work as a non-non-profit.
In considering who is "traditionally underrepresented," we will consider language, socioeconomic status, immigration status, disability, age, and/or LGBTQ+.
