Inside a Grant or Residency Panel Process
Get an inside look at a panel selection process for artist grants, including what panelists look for and consider, and tips that can bolster your next application. The group will review project descriptions and work samples from real applications to provide honest feedback and advice. The session will take the form of a mock panel-room conversation and have time at the end for questions from the audience. This panel will be led by Creative Capital Awardee James Scruggs and will feature additional artists and reviewers that represent a range of artistic disciplines, perspectives and panel experience. Updates on the additional panelists coming soon!
