Funding Accelerator: Our second bid writing workshop

We held the second of our bid writing workshops here in the Imagination Lab on the 28th February 2018. Despite the snow we had partners travelling from the depths of East Lancashire and the wilds of Glasgow and after warming up with a hot drink and a biscuit we got down to business.

This workshop focused around six key themes

  • subjective wellbeing
  • real empowerment – understanding and valuing impact
  • modern skills & employment
  • useful data for all
  • inter-generational working

After a brief discussion we invited our participants to form groups around mutual interests to investigate what projects they may like to take forward. Four groups formed and there was a dynamic set of discussions around the themes and possible projects connected with them.

We then had an informative presentation by Madeline Smith from Glasgow School of Art around the fundamentals of evaluation and how to build it into your bids from the start.

Our workshop ended with informal networking and continuing discussion over lunch.

If you would like to attend one or more of our workshops you can find the details and book via Eventbrite.
