The Arts Council of New Orleans is seeking volunteers to serve as Grants Review Panelists. Panelists will be expected to read and review applications and participate in the panel meeting to determine funding recommendations. In order to volunteer, persons living in Orleans, Jefferson, or Plaquemines parishes should have a strong, unbiased knowledge of the arts field and the communities in which they live.
The panel will be chosen by the Arts Council of New Orleans to reflect the geographic and ethnic make-up of the region, as well as reflect the communities served and the various arts disciplines. Board Members of non-profit agencies are encouraged to volunteer. Employees of applying agencies are not eligible to serve on panels in which their grants are being reviewed.
