    Hi there,

    I’d like to set up an individual appointment to discuss the QAF grant but can’t seem to find the appropriate place to sign up. Could you point me in the right direction?

    I’d also like to attend the Sept. 30th session – do I need to sign up for that as well?

    Thanks!
    Savannah

      Hi Savannah,
      Unfortunately the Queens Arts Fund individual appointments have closed. If you are looking to fulfill your tutorial requirement before the October deadline, you can still attend an application info session here at QCA Tuesday evening , Sept. 30 at 6:00, or you can watch the online tutorials here. Just remember to sign up to get credit.
      If you have specific questions about your application you can either call Lynn at 347-505-3015 or email me at llobell@queenscouncilarts.org.

    Hi, I signed up for a one-on-one session on Sept 17th at 1:20pm. I have not yet received a confirmation email, can you please confirm if I am scheduled at that day/time.

    Thank you,
    Amy Bassin

  3. Hi, I signed up last week for a one-on-one session on the 10th at 1pm. I have not yet received a confirmation email. Is there a problem, or does it just take a while?

    Thanks!

    Dear QCA Staff,

    I tried to sign up for one-on-one appointment, but your system says it doesn’t support the IE version I use. I don’t have any newer version of computer, so that cannot download the newer version of IE either. Is there any other way to apply for it? I am wishing to have an appointment on Sep. 17th, from 3:40-4:00 pm. If you can register me with this correspondence, I appreciate it very much.

    Sincerely,

    Eri Misaki,
