Camp With Us



How far along am I expected or required to be in my creative project?

Preparation for arriving at the first Global Mastery Camp centers on articulating your creative project. Think comfortably and steadily about what you intend with the work and how to describe it. It matters not how far you are into the project, whether you have yet to begin or have what you hope is a final draft or artistic proposal, but that you’ve determined this is your year to commit to it. Don’t worry or be intimidated, we are all in the creative fire with you.

What I need is practical, applicable help. This is how I understand Global Mastery Camp. Is this accurate? Can Global Mastery Camp help my project have a future?

Yes, with the powerful combination of the grant writing skill workshop and the Creative Project Plan, Global Mastery Camp aims to propel your project into its future.

How does Global Mastery Camp propel my project into the future?

By preparing me with competencies to achieve results. Act with agency and confidence to apply for and receive residencies; fellowships; grants; speaking engagements; writing opportunities.

Channeling my unique voice and treasure into the envisioning and development of websites; newsletters; outreach; new partnerships; publications.

With the help of GMC participants and alum, identifying new or hidden opportunities to bring my work into the public sphere.

I understand Global Mastery Camp is 4, 3-hour Saturdays on Zoom. Do you anticipate that I will be working on my creative plan (and so on) during the weekdays?

There is a three-week interim between the third and final Zoom session for completion of the Creative Project Plan. Global Mastery Camp will be intense and a serious time commitment in and out of camp.

I look forward to the opportunity to work shoulder to shoulder with other women. Do you anticipate that we will build community?

AROHO is shoulder to shoulder. Our Global Camps have been life-changing and bonding. We are confident that this year’s Global Mastery Camp will forge another beautiful community.

How many other participants will I be in the company of?

The size of the group will not exceed 20.

How does Global Mastery Camp Intensive feel different?
