Call for Grant Panelists

The Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs invites members of the community to apply to serve as a volunteer grant panelist. The Department seeks individuals interested in reviewing applications for cultural grant funding from Miami-Dade County, through the Cultural Affairs Council and administered by the Department of Cultural Affairs.

Each year the Department of Cultural Affairs relies on the services of many volunteer panelists, who review and evaluate grant applications and make funding recommendations. Panelists help maintain a fair and open process and assist in the continuous development of Miami-Dade County’s artistic and cultural communities by bringing their expertise to the panel review process. Panels are comprised of artists, arts-related professionals, educators, community members, business leaders and others with current or prior active involvement in the arts. Many panelists are arts professionals who are qualified by their activities, training, skills, and/or experience in one or more art forms; however, we equally welcome arts enthusiasts, advocates and supporters to apply.
