California Creative Corps Grant Review Panelist Application
Tehama County’s people are our most treasured resource. A diverse panel pool ensures the integrity of our grant review process for all applicants, representative of our county’s racial, ethnic, and gender identities; eclectic geography; and wealth of organizations, perspectives, and knowledge.
Eligible applicants will be included in a panelist pool to be approved by Tehama County Arts Council – as a partner agency to the Administering Organization for the California Arts Council – in the months preceding the 2023-24 Upstate California Creative Corps grant activity period.
Specifically, panelists selected to serve the Upstate California Creative Corps will be reviewing Tehama County’s applications. We will contact panelist applicants between January and March, 2023.
The Upstate California Creative Corps is a media, outreach, and engagement campaign designed to increase awareness around public health, water and energy conservation, climate mitigation, emergency preparedness, relief, and recovery, civic engagement and social justice. $3.38m will be re-granted to artists, and arts and social service organizations, as well as units of government, who will employ artists to this end.
Panelists must meet the following criteria:
They must be Tehama County residents
They must be able to assess the strengths and weaknesses of multiple applications based on our Upstate California Creative Corps published program goals and review criteria
They must have the capacity to take part in three (3) mandatory virtual group meetings and 10-12 hours reviewing grants, taking notes, and attending meetings and orientations over a six-to-eight-week period. Each panelist receives a modest honorarium of $150. All reviews and meetings may take place in-person and / or remotely. More information about reviewing grants will be provided at the appropriate time.
