Citizens Invited to Apply for Appointment to Arts and Culture Grant Juries

22-Dec-2017

The Greater Sudbury Development Corporation (GSDC) is seeking 12 citizens for appointment to its two Arts and Culture Grant Juries to enhance the GSDC’s decision-making process through community engagement. The City of Greater Sudbury supports the growth of arts and culture in our community with investments through the Arts and Culture Grant Program. .

Working with the Business Development Officer for Arts and Culture, both sets of jurors will have the role of reviewing and evaluating applications submitted annually to the City of Greater Sudbury Arts and Culture Grant Program. The juries will recommend a fair allocation of the available funds based on the assessment criteria laid out in the Arts and Culture Grant Policy and alignment with the Greater Sudbury Cultural Plan. Jurors champion 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 professional artists, administrators from arts and culture organizations and community members 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 professional artists, administrators from arts and culture organizations and community members at large.
