In DMG Workshop

DMG is excited to welcome Peter Kingstone, Visual & Media Arts Program Manager at the Toronto Arts Council, back for a workshop and discussion about applying for project grants as a media artist (hey, that’s you!).

Peter will lead a discussion about the TAC grants that are available for artists, what you need to prepare to apply, and answer all of your questions about how to give your game the best shot with the jury – including hot tips on documentation and telling your story. About Peter
