Calgary Arts Development is seeking artists, arts workers, and community members to serve as selection committee members for their public art program. Assessment committees help to consider grant applications, meet with peers, and contribute to thoughtful conversations around the arts.
Committees are designed to reflect and respect the broad diversity of Calgary and its artistic communities, including but not limited to: artistic discipline, gender, sexuality, age, religion, beliefs, nation, physical, neurological and Mad identities, and more.
Calgary Arts Development provides an honorarium to assessors as a gift to recognize their time.
Selection is ongoing throughout the year, however, we are unable to use all individuals nominated on our committees. Completion of this form does not guarantee you will be contacted by Calgary Arts Development to participate.
Assessment committees are expected to commit to Calgary Arts Development’s Group Agreements.
Assessors will be expected to consider applications, meet with peers and Calgary Arts Development staff, and contribute to thoughtful conversations around the arts.
Assessors are typically asked to commit to the below. Schedules are determined based on committee availability, and may include evenings, weekdays, and weekends.
– One information and training session (up to three hours).
– Four to six weeks to read and evaluate applications online.
– Up to two days of in-person assessment meetings (up to eight hours each day).
Calgary Arts Development provides an honorarium to assessors as a gift to recognize their time. The honorarium will be provided to assessors after the reviewing process is completed and honorarium rates depend on the program requirements.
Please Note: We are unable to use all individuals nominated on our committees.
