Introducing Grant Spa Day: a day that integrates self-care, well-being, and community-building into the isolating and stressful activity of grant-writing.

With tables set up around the studio, as well as cushions and mats available for stretching and speed naps, we hope to offer a unique peer supported coworking space where grant writing could actually be fun. Mentors will be there to help you with proofreading scripts and budgets, using the different portals, video selection, for your grant applications in dance, theatre, circus or interdisciplinary arts.

303 staff will be on hand to help with proofreading, “portal-navigation”, video editing, budget review for any grant applications related to dance or interdisciplinary arts. 10 minute professional chair massage and gluten free, vegan lunch included. Participate as much or as little as you’d like – you’re welcome to use this space as needed!

10 minute chair massage (by a professional massage therapist) and a meal (gluten free + vegan) are included! Feel free to participate as much as you like and use the space as you wish.
