Interested in creating a portfolio? Have questions about eligibility? Need help with your portfolio? Want to hear tips and pointers? Curious what past awardees have to say?

Join us for a Baker Info Session!

Each Baker Info Session session will feature an hour-long presentation from GBCA Staff with detailed program overviews and instructions on using the site. Whenever possible a past awardee will also be present to offer insight and tips on presenting yourself as an artist and creating a strong portfolio.

New sessions will be added throughout the season!
