Volunteer to serve as a Grants Panelist
The Department of Cultural Affairs is seeking individuals interested in reviewing applications for cultural grants funding from Miami-Dade County, through the Cultural Affairs Council and administered by the Department of Cultural Affairs. Each year, the Department of Cultural Affairs relies on the services of many volunteer panelists, who review and evaluate grant applications and make funding recommendations. Panels are comprised of artists, arts-related professionals, educators, community members, business leaders and others with current or prior active involvement in the arts, such as board members of cultural organizations. Panelists help maintain a fair and open process and assist in the continuous development of Miami-Dade County’s artistic and cultural communities by bringing their expertise to the panel review process.
Prospective panelists should possess experience in one or more of the following areas:
- Knowledge of and familiarity with Miami-Dade County’s non-profit arts community;
- Artistic experience in an arts discipline (music, theatre, visual arts, etc.) as a creator, administrator, board member and/or general supporter of the arts;
- Experience in non-profit sector or arts management, including, but not limited to, organizational planning & management, finance & accounting, development & fundraising or marketing;
- Arts education; and
- Experience with cultural facilities and venues (acquisition, building, renovation, management) as an architect, contractor, builder, operations/programming manager and/or owner.
