Panelists

Serving as a grant panelist for the Indiana Arts Commission (IAC) is a means of making a valuable contribution to the arts in Indiana. All of our grant applications are reviewed individually by citizen panelists who then meet as a group in a recorded public panel meeting. At this convening, panelists discuss applications and finalize their individual scores for a specified group of applicants.

What you put into it

  • Your expertise and advice for applicants
  • Watching a 30 minute orientation webinar (it's fun, really!)
  • Several hours of reading applications
  • A few hours of discussion on panel day
  • Your advice to us about how to make programs more effective

What you get out of it

  • Being part of decision-making in state government
  • Meeting your peers in Indiana who are also panelists
  • Make new connections with artists, organizations, and colleagues
  • Learn about clever ideas, innovative projects, and the folks making things happen
  • Develop grant making skills
  • Many, many thanks from the IAC
