Interested in being an Arts Build Communities grant review panelist?
Please complete the following form. Metro Arts staff will review your information and contact you if we believe you would be a good fit for the community review panel. 

Arts Build Communities is a Tennessee Arts Commission grant funding program that is administered locally by Metro Arts.  The Arts Build Communities (ABC) grant program is designed to provide support for arts projects that broaden access to arts experiences, address community quality of life issues through the arts, or enhance the sustainability of asset-based cultural enterprises. Funding is open to nonprofit organizations and government entities chartered in Tennessee.

Funded projects are selected by a panel of artists and community experts, who submit funding recommendations to the Metro Arts Commission.  The Metro Arts Commission and Tennessee Arts Commission make final funding determinations.


We are currently recruiting ABC grant review panelists for the FY22 (August 16, 2021 - June 15, 2022) funding cycle:

  • Review period: July 20 - August 2, 2021
  • Panel discussion meeting (by phone): August 3, 2021 at 10:00 am*

*for health and safety of all involved, this year's panel will be held via phone.

Can't be a panelist for these dates? Email marysa.larowe@nashville.gov to be added to the list for future panelist opportunity announcements.

We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
