Taka has been very helpful in assisting me with my understanding of grant applications. I'm thankful for his perspective, advice, dedication and care in facilitating and helping steer me in the right direction with grants and applications for funding and residencies. He has a very thorough and honest approach often spending time reading, questioning and helping unpack the details of my practice, project ideas and artistic vision which I appreciate enormously. In addition he is insightful, seeing things I may not necessarily pick up on and making bold suggestions. He has also assisted me in the areas of clarifying my artistic vision and a real working 'partner' in picking out the strong points of what I do.
I feel the arts industry need invaluable producers like Taka – to assist those who have no or very small voices in getting themselves and their work out there or knowing the processes of grant/residency applications. I strongly recommend his services wholeheartedly.
