This workshop is a hands-on learning experience where creatives can get help signing into the grant portal and navigating content. Learn why independent panelists didn’t choose you for the Arts in Education Roster; find out what panelists are looking for; and learn how creatives on the Roster use it to expand their businesses. The Arkansas Arts Council cannot edit content, but we will provide tips and services that help creatives find the skills and technology needed to apply to our programs.
