Community Nominated Reviewers should reflect these qualities, experiences, and understandings:
- Objective and knowledgeable about the arts and culture in the Greater Houston Region.
- Be a connector of communities who listens to many different voices.
- Have a history of advocating for communities of color, artists, or arts organizations.
From the nominated individuals, we will invite community members who will help our review panels be more reflective of the Greater Houston BIPOC arts ecosystem.
Panelists must attend a virtual onboarding session prior to the review period. Depending on the grant opportunity, panelists commit to 15- 30 hours to review proposals, and up to two panel meetings of 3 - 4 hours. Timeline will be announced with the grant opportunity.
Selected panelists will receive an honorarium to read and score grants.
All panelists will need to comply with our Conflict of Interest Statement.
