About the Facilitator
Debby Maziarz is an educator and creative entrepreneur who mentors artists, organisations and communities to create solid plans for resourcing their work. Renowned for unearthing innovative and ‘fundable’ ideas, Debby is driven to challenge the mindset that stops superstars from excelling. She’s also got a great track record in sourcing funds – including founding Melbourne’s Westside Circus and Arts Barter Australia.
Debby is an excellent communicator and presented a lively workshop that engaged and informed me very much. This workshop has increased my confidence to be able to apply for grants. Grant applications are an unknown entity and fearful for me, so this workshop with Debby was very valuable and impactful for me at this important time as an emerging artist. I learned information about how to attack the budget and overall I’ve gained the knowledge, insight and skills to develop, complete and submit a strong and more competitive project proposal and grant application.
I thoroughly enjoyed it....you're a rare mix of brilliantly purposeful and engaging teacher/facilitator and hugely relevant and pragmatic professional in the field.
Last night unexpectedly gave, what I can only term as an epiphany, as to why I’ve not achieved some funding objectives.
Debby ran a fantastic session. Her warm personality and personal stories of projects empowered me to engage with her simple, concise but detailed presentation, leaving me feeling much more capable and inspired!
