West Midlands Museum Development (WMMD) and Jenni Waugh have teamed up to provide bid writing support on Wednesday 21 July and Thursday 22 July.

What makes a good funding application? These half day workshops explore the principles of good bid writing, helping you build your confidence and develop your skills in writing small funding bids.

This is your opportunity to hone your application for the WMMD Recovery Grant!

Jenni will introduce you to planning techniques based on the Theory of Change to help you break down the elements of your application and tie your planned outcomes to both the funding criteria and your own strategic plan.

We will use the Recovery Grant framework as an example, but many of the planning and writing techniques we will cover can be scaled up for applying to larger funding programmes.

It will help if you come with an idea of what you might plan to bid for. During the session, we will all work together to test and share ideas that will help each of you to strengthen your application.

Sessions are limited to a small number of delegates with breaks, breakout rooms and plenty of opportunities for questions and discussion.

Book Wednesday 21 July (1pm-4pm)       

Book Thursday 22 July (10am-1pm) CANCELLED

Both workshops are the same – please only book a place on one workshop per organisation.

Places are limited to one delegate per organisation. Priority will be given to delegates from museums eligible to apply for the WMMD Recovery Grants.

The webinars will be live captioned through StageText and MyClearText.

All participants will receive an email containing a Zoom link prior to the event. The email will be sent to the email address used for booking. If you have not received an email by the day before the event please contact us.

Unable to attend either of the workshops, or looking for a shorter introduction to bid writing skills?

Jenni will join WMMD for a special focused Coffee and Chatter on Thursday 4 August 10.30am-11am. She will give a presentation on confident bid writing skills followed by a brief Q&A; perfect as a refresher or for those seeking some top tips!
