What People Are Saying...
We love our supporters, listeners and fans!
You keep us informed…
“I actually enjoy the weekly emails and I look forward to them. I think it is great that you keep us all informed.
Your updates make me feel involved and appreciated
It’s wonderful to be updated on the status of the grant process. Many times, when you submit for a grant, you don’t hear anything. This can be very nerve wrecking. The updates make the artist feel more involved and appreciated.
This build-up to the "big announcement" is kind of nice! Even if I get it I appreciate the anticipation and recognition. I also love the concept since so much of our work is hard to define or categorize, as art should be, not the exception. Well done!
Will there be cake?
Overall, you are doing okay. However, all the emails revving us up for "the big announcement," triggers a stress response in me. I don’t want to be wound up and revved up for yet another rejection. It’s like dealing with my aging cat sitting at the door. In or out? Make up your mind. Will there be cake afterwards? I do better with cake.
No complaints and especially thank you for the (weekly) Monday emails.
Thank you for the great experience
I’ve been so anxious throughout this whole process, but in a good way! This is the first grant I’ve ever applied for and I wasn’t sure how the experience was going to go. I want to thank you for the great experience and for being so informative.
I felt understood as an artist…
I really enjoyed the process of applying to this grant. Unlike some other grants, I felt understood as an artist. I also really appreciate the frequent email (updates) which keep us in the loop. I truly feel part of this process, regardless of the results. It really makes me want to be a part of this community.
Not looking for trophies
Instead of an "art trophy" for winners, why not just add more to cash the grant award? Pretty sure grant applicants are not looking for trophies.
I’ve found the experience with the NOT REAL ART Grant to be great overall! Not once have I felt out of the loop, every email is informative and interesting! I really appreciate being regularly updated on the current status of the application, as well as new and exciting events!
I loved the podcasts too
This experience has been great! I loved the podcasts too!
Thank you for all you do
The submission process was straight forward and you provided a way for video to be viewed which can sometimes be a challenge in submission processes. Thank you for all you do and for your support of the arts!
Appreciate the grant and how easy the process has been. I enjoy the email updates and newsletters. Thank you!
