Grant Review Advisory Panel

 

    Entertainment Series of Irving presented
Canadian Tenors in FY09-10.
Thank you for your interest in the Arts Center's Advisory Grant Review Panel.  All positions are now filled.  Applications will be accepted for the 2014-15 panel beginning June 1, 2014.  

 

Panelists are appointed by the Irving Arts Board and serve a two-year term. They play an important role in the process through which funding is awarded to area non-profit arts groups – which include the Irving Arts Center’s 11 Resident Organizations. In FY13, more than $425,000 was distributed by the Irving Arts Board for projects that included symphony concerts, plays and musicals, art exhibitions, ballet performances, art classes, youth programs and more.

They play an important role in the process through which funding is awarded to area non-profit arts groups – which include the Irving Arts Center’s 11 Resident Organizations.

The panelists are selected to reflect the diversity of Irving and include balanced representation of those with expertise, experience and knowledge of theater, music, dance and the visual arts. While applicants must be residents of Irving there is two positions filled by non-resident experts who hold positions within an arts-related field.

Applicants should have a demonstrated knowledge of the visual and/or performing arts as practicing artists, qualified arts consumers or representatives from various cultural constituencies. Panelists volunteer their time as a service to the Irving Arts Center and the Irving arts community.

Panelists will be expected to attend funded activities during their term (tickets provided by the Arts Center). They will not make funding decisions and may not review applications from applicants with whom they may have a conflict of interest or the appearance of a conflict of interest. Panelists will review grant applications, rank them as to their relative quality and merit based on other applications and assess the probability of each applicant achieving their proposed project goals. The panel provides advice and guidance to the Irving Arts Board and may be asked to do the same for staff members and the Arts Board in working with applicant organizations in the future.
