To further our goal to promote weaving and all related fiber arts and to preserve all the traditions of these arts, ANWG is pleased to award grants for activities such as lectures, seminars, workshops, research projects, retreats, etc. Up to 25 $600 grants will be awarded for use between June 2018 and December 2019. These grants are made possible by the profit from the 2017 ANWG Conference in Victoria, BC. Our thanks to the Victoria Conference Committee for a successful event.
Grants are available to any guild or study group within a guild that is a member in good standing with ANWG (current in their dues). Each application must be signed by the Guild President and, if appropriate, the Chair of the project/event. Each guild is allowed one application. Guilds can join together for an event and submit a joint application.
The application must be received electronically by April 15, 2018 and include a detailed budget of estimated income and expenses. Email the completed application to firstname.lastname@example.org . Applications received after April 15 will not be considered.
Applications will be numbered as received before being redacted and reviewed by the ANWG Board grant committee. These blind evaluations will be compiled and the final decision made by the grant committee. Grant recipients will be announced at the Annual Membership Meeting in Portland, OR May 19, 2018 and in the ANWG newsletter.
The recipient of each grant is expected to provide a project/event report to the ANWG Board within 60 days of completion for publication in the newsletter, including photos when appropriate.
