Organization Project Grants (OPG) Review Panel (Visual Arts, Media & Music)
We strongly encourage you or a representative to attend the review panel and take notes. We recommend coming early and staying for your entire review block to hear other application reviews. Feedback from review panels is often a valuable way to contribute to artistic development, grant writing skills, and understanding the review process.
Benefits of attending the review panels:
- Get feedback on the strengths and weaknesses of your application, including project design/narrative, project budget, work sample(s), etc.
- Opportunity to have your work reviewed by 4-6 respected artists, administrators, and peers in the field
- Receive feedback on grantsmanship
- Get an overview of the applicant pool
- Gain insights into broader trends and field issues
