Durham Arts Council grant panelists play a central role in reviewing applications for funding for both individual artists and arts/cultural organizations. We rely on panels composed of individuals who represent a broad range of artistic and cultural viewpoints, as well as wide ethnic/racial diversity, to provide assessment of grant applicant proposals in a variety of funding categories. Our panels are composed of artists, arts professionals and arts educators. Panelists are qualified by their activities, training, skills, and/or experience in one or more art forms. Panelists are not required to live or work in Durham County though we prioritize individuals who are based in North Carolina. All panel activities take place online, so a panelist is not required to attend meetings in person. An honorarium is offered to each panelist who serves. Durham Arts Council celebrates the unique creativity and spirit of every person and believes in creating a vibrant, diverse, equitable and inclusive community through the arts. DAC is committed at every level to developing, supporting, and celebrating diversity, equity, access, inclusion and belonging in our programming, grants, services, audience, workforce, vendor relationships, board and governance as a reflection of the diverse communities we serve.
