Application Review Panel Meetings

Each eligible application will be reviewed and scored by a conflict-free panel comprised of arts professionals using the IAP's Application Review Criteria. The panel review will be open to the public and may be recorded. Applicants are invited and encouraged to attend to hear feedback.
Individual Artist Program panelists are Indiana residents knowledgeable in specific arts disciplines and/or arts management. For more information about being a grant review panelist visit the IAC’s Serve as a Grant Review Panelist webpage.
