Curious about grants? Do you really have to sleep with the officer or the jury to get one? Have you applied for many years and have rejection-letter wallpaper?
This grant-writing workshop, led by BC Arts Council Grant Coordinator Walter Quan, demystified grants and offered tips and real information about how to be successful in your grant writing. Participants had the opportunity to serve as “jurors” for a group of applications taken from “real” visual artists. May the best applications win!
On Wednesday January 28, 2015 at 7:00 p.m. Open Space will host an evening of improvised music with the Kyle Brenders Quartet. Kyle Brenders (saxophone), Heather Segger (trombone), Wes Neal (bass), and Mark Segger (drums) will be stopping by on their tour of Western Canada. Harkening from the Toronto improvised music scene, they will share their multi-stylistic music ranging from free jazz to new music and beyond.
While in Victoria, on January 27, 2015 at 7:00 p.m. the Kyle Brenders Quartet will host a improvisation workshop at Open Space. Bring along your instruments (or voice) for an engaging evening of jamming and improvisational strategies. The Kyle Brenders Quartet will create a welcoming and inspirational space for all participants. This workshop is by donation.
