Peer Knowledge Share Workshops 

We welcome you to share your expertise on a particular topic with fellow CalArtians. Past topics include how to pitch your script, social media for artists, and maintaining your creative vision while managing professional relationships. 

Workshops are presented on a volunteer basis and are hosted in Los Angeles or virtually. Presentations run 45 minutes with an additional 15-30 minutes for Q & A. Your workshop may be live streamed or recorded to share with the CalArts community. The Alumnx Office presents 2-4 Peer Knowledge Share Workshops a year and will move forward with complete submissions that best fit the needs and requests of the community.

Alumnx Council Seed Grants 

Alumnx Council Grants are a way the Institute gives back to alumnx artists through seed funding for projects and happenings that promote alumnx community connection, collaboration, inclusion, and impact on the arts. Proposals that are collaborative, experimental, reflect our community’s diversity, and involve the participation of multiple alumnx are encouraged. This initiative values partnership among CalArts, the alumnx community, and the Alumnx Council.   

Grants may be applied toward expenses such as, but not limited to, production, equipment, rentals, supplies, hospitality, printing, promotions, etc. Proposed projects should be open to/shareable with the alumnx community; weblinks, prints, exhibits, RSVP and/or registration (for events) are allowable and recommended. The goal is for the end product to be accessible to the alumnx community.    

Ten grants of $250 each will be awarded between two cycles (five in each cycle) in the 2018-19 year. These grants are funded by the Office of Alumnx Engagement via the CalArts Fund, the primary vehicle by which alumnx support their schools, scholarships, students, and initiatives such as this.

 Fall Cycle: Thursday, November 8, 5pm PST December 1  By December 15 
Spring Cycle: Thursday, March 21, 5PM PST  April 11   By April 30
