Mach's fertig! – Application Workshop | Deep Dive

Labor Ateliers | Dachauer Str. 112d, 80797 München, Deutschland

Structured proposal writing on 03.05.24 from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m

The workshop teaches how to write an application for each call for proposals in a structured way and thus increase the chances of being approved. We will mainly deal with the principle of an application argumentation, with which it is possible to logically connect the goals of the sponsor with the own project goals. As a working example, we will use the form of the Munich Department of Culture. In addition, we will take a look at calls for proposals in order to understand which information is relevant for the funder to be able to evaluate an application.


11 a.m. - 1 p.m. In-depth session, Structured Application with Felix Wittek and Matthias Quabbe.

1 p.m. Lunch break

2 - 3 p.m. Q & A with representatives of Tanzbüro and Theaterbüro

You can find the information for Part I on May 02 here!
