    In our final episode of Granted, our undeniably amazing guest, Laura Simpson, talks about being a music fan and what she has learned after reading thousands of grants as the former funding officer at Music Nova Scotia. Together we discuss ways to approach the application process, how to write an engaging grant, and some thoughtful tricks of the trade. Laura shares how she started The Syrup Factory and Side Door, her entrepreneurial experiences, and lots of honest advice. This is a really special episode and we hope you love it just as much as we do.

REAL TALK

So often we question things in the music industry, but struggle to find real talk about how things work and why. These conversations are desperately needed to innovate the way we do things and do better. ~ Former funding program offficer

Speaking my language!!!

I am LOVING this podcast! So far every guest has been a person on my list of people to have coffee with to talk about EXACTLY THIS! Funding is so important and I’m so happy this podcast exists to talk about it (at least so far) in a really regional way! Our funding systems are vastly different in amounts and programs than other provinces and as an arts administrator and executive director of an arts organization these kinds of conversations are so important to be having with our peers. I especially appreciated Cat’s episode about policy! Thank you for doing this!!! So exciting!
