My first year was last year... and even with a load of experience in traveling by motorcycle across the planet... that includes the remote deserts of Australia.

Re: Art Grants - did you receive a confirm email?

I sent in two grant apps and only got a response for one of them (it was about 5 min after I emailed it in.) I contacted BM about the other grant app and they said not to worry. It's early March now so I guess we'll see who is getting a grant soon. I am trying to remember... i think it said somewhe...

This has happened six times in the last three hours. An...
