Citizens Invited to Apply for Appointment to Arts and Culture Grant Juries
Mar 10, 2016
The City of Greater Sudbury recognizes the value that arts and culture contributes to the community with investments through the Arts & Culture Grant Program. The Greater Sudbury Development Corporation (GSDC) is seeking 12 citizens for appointment to its two Arts & Culture Grant Juries to enhance the GSDC’s decision-making process through community engagement.
Working with the Business Development Officer for Arts & Culture, both sets of jurors will have the role of reviewing and evaluating applications submitted annually to the City of Greater Sudbury Arts & Culture Grant Program. The juries will recommend a fair allocation of the available funds based on the assessment criteria laid out in the Arts & Culture Grant Policy and alignment with the Greater Sudbury Cultural Plan. Jurors should have regard for the City’s commitment to supporting the growth of the local arts and culture sector. The GSDC Board will receive the juries’ recommendations to determine and finalize funding allocations.
Jurors will be selected with consideration to fair representation of cultural/artistic disciplines, gender, generations, and cultural diversity. Nominees must be residents of the City of Greater Sudbury and at least 18 years old. Appointments to the juries are unpaid volunteer positions.
The Operating Jury will evaluate applications to the Operating Grant Stream based on three criteria: artistic/cultural merit, community impact/benefits and organizational/financial health. In addition to representation from the GSDC Board, the jury will be composed of two professional artists, two administrators from arts and culture organizations and one community member at large.
The Project Jury will evaluate applications to the Project Grant Stream for special or one-time activities. In addition to representation from the GSDC Board, the jury will be composed of two professional artists, two administrators from arts and culture organizations and three community members at large.
Written or e-mail letters and résumés may be addressed to Emily Trottier, Business Development Officer and e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. All letters should clearly indicate your reasons for wishing to serve on the jury, which of the two juries you wish you serve, and a list all direct affiliations with local arts and culture initiatives.
