Creative Melrosians are invited to “Creative Connect” networking night to learn about local funding opportunities.
The Melrose Creative Alliance invites creative Melrosians and arts and cultural producing organizations to a networking event to learn more about funding sources for creative community projects.
“Creative Connect” is a free, friendly networking event open to the public on September 17, 6:30pm-8pm at the MMTV studios at 360 Main Street in Melrose.
Attendees will be able to meet and network with representatives from funding organizations including: Melrose Cultural Council, Melrose Messina Fund for the Arts, Melrose Rotary Club, Eastern Bank, and Melrose Coop Foundation. This is also an opportunity to meet other creatives and potential collaboration partners, get advice from local arts administrators, learn more about SDM Foundation and other resources, as well as check out the Melrose Cultural Council’s “Arts Marketing Toolkit.” At 6:45pm, the Opening Doors Project will give a brief talk about furthering their mission through navigating funding opportunities.
This event is free and open to individuals, volunteer groups, and nonprofit organizations alike. Melrose funding organizations are seeking diverse perspectives and themes, and we encourage everyone with a creative project idea to come share your ideas and seek guidance!
