Grant Review Panelist: Metro Arts seeks
volunteers to serve as grant application reviewers. No experience required. We
provide sufficient orientation so all panelists may serve confidently.
Panelists review all submitted application materials online, attend required
orientation and review meetings, and score each grant application. Scores are
averaged and used to help Metro Arts determine grant awards.
Public Art Selection Panelist: A public art
Selection Panel is comprised of artists, community and business
representatives, architects, landscape architects and other design
professionals and Metro representatives. These panels review submissions for public art projects and makes recommendations to the Public Art Committee.
Metro Arts strives to form selection panels that
are diverse and appropriate to the specific project or program. Though
voluntary, the demographic data and resume upload included in this form will
assist Metro Arts in accomplishing this goal.
Metro Arts looks for individuals who are
thoughtful, willing to listen to others' opinions and are able to represent a
specific viewpoint that is relevant to the public art project. Self nominations
Panelist Eligibility Criteria:
Every Metro Arts
panelist must work or live in Davidson County, have a keen interest in the arts
(as an artist, participant, audience member, donor, educator, etc.), and must
not be an employee of Metro government (including Metro Nashville Public
Schools) or any applicant organization. All panelists must declare real or
perceived conflicts of interests in advance.
When Metro Arts assembles a review panel, we:
1. seek to achieve diversity among panelists in
age, race/cultural identity, council district residency, physical abilities,
personal and professional interests, expertise, etc.;
2. trust all panelists to honestly declare all
applicant-related real or perceived conflicts as soon as they become aware that
a conflict exists;
3. expect all panelists to take the review
process seriously and honor their commitment to serve as instructed;
4. recruit panel members who truly care about the
arts in our community, as non-artists or artists.
Please understand that not all recommendations will be used.
