The City of Vancouver’s Cultural Services is looking for members of the creative community to participate in one of many upcoming cultural grant assessment committee meetings.
Committee members will have expertise in one or more of the following areas: theatre, dance, music, festivals, visual arts, media arts, literary arts, Aboriginal arts and culture, community arts, cultural administration, and cultural facilities.
Members will have a thorough understanding of the arts and cultural sector in Vancouver (either through practice or work experience), and will have been active members of the Vancouver arts and cultural communities in recent years.
Prior experience on juries or assessment committees is considered an asset and members are paid an honorarium and a reading fee.
All members must meet the City's Conflict of Interest Policy .
This is an opportunity to have input into how recommendations are made for cultural grants, to share your expertise, to meet colleagues in the community and learn about the initiatives taking place in our City.
It is also a first-hand look at how the Cultural Services assessment process for cultural grants works. They have broadened the criteria so that recipients of cultural grants can also participate, with conflict of interest guidelines in place.
