Grant and Public Art PanelsEvery grant application we receive is evaluated through a peer-panel review process. Each year, hundreds of volunteers provide invaluable support to 4Culture by serving on these panels.
On-Site ReviewsInterested in being a part of the grant-making process? On-Site Reviewers go to events presented by arts and heritage organizations funded by or applying for our Sustained Support grants—orchestras, theaters, dance groups, galleries, choruses, festivals, museums, and more. On-Site Reviews are on hiatus this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
