The NDCA is looking for people who are interested in serving as panelists for various grant programs. These programs include Institutional Support, Community Arts Access, Artist-in-Residence and Teacher Incentive, Presenter Support, and Individual Artist Fellowship grants. NDCA panelists' advice plays a central role in reviewing applications for funding and in discussing policy issues about the needs of the arts. Panels are composed of individuals who represent a broad range of artistic and cultural viewpoints and geographic and ethnic diversity. Panelists may be either arts experts - experienced in a specific art form- or a layperson that is knowledgeable about the arts but not engaged in the arts as a profession.
