Freebie Friday: Interview with Robb Nanus

Freebie square 9-22

You know what day it is!

This week’s Freebie Friday is an interview with Robb Nanus, an accomplished producer and grant writer. Robb gives light to his background and career in producing. We also touch upon topics ranging from success, grant writing, what he looks for in grant applications, and the process of creating work that is impactful – and how he defines that for his own work and the projects that he supports.

You can find out more about Robb and the Awesome Foundation in the links below.

If you find this helpful or interesting, we have more interviews and other content on, where you can enroll in our online course, Artist Resources and Tools, or better known as ART School. Or, if you are specifically interested in learning about creating your best portfolio and application, we made a short program called Great Applications. Check it out!

Have you taken our housing survey yet?

We are conducting some research about housing, and would love your feedback!

Many real estate owners and developers think working people (and specifically artists) want to rent forever. Can this be true? Here is a survey to help us better understand the needs of working people, and artists specifically, in regards to their housing. Please fill this out and re-post where you can. Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts with us.
