Applying for Arts Opportunities

Individual Session

by Anna Ogier-Bloomer

Anna Ogier-Bloomer believes as important to an artist’s career as making the work is submitting it to opportunities to share it with the world. Artists must invest the time and attention to obtain grants, residencies, fellowships, project-based and professional development opportunities, and open calls. In this session, together you will discuss appropriate opportunities for your work, and how to get them. You will review your materials and ensure you’re presenting yourself impactfully and clearly. She’ll also share tips and inside information she's learned from years of working with arts organizations, institutions, curators, and dealers so that you can best prepare yourself and your materials to obtain the opportunities necessary to move your career forward.


In preparation for an Expert session with Anna Ogier-Bloomer, please email her a bulleted list of any questions you have and anything else she should know in advance of your meeting. She also would like to see your work before we speak, so please also email her a link to your website, online portfolio, social media handle, or, if you don’t yet have any work posted online, then a link to a Google Drive folder of images or files she can access. Seeing the work is an important part of your conversation.

For sessions about any of the following: applying to opportunities, building an audience, or conducting studio visits, please also send her any organizations, venues, or individuals you’re interested in connecting with. If you wish to have a session focused on one single application, please let me know what the opportunity and the organization are in advance of your meeting.
