Bloomington, IN – The Community Foundation of Bloomington & Monroe County, Ivy Tech Community College-Bloomington and the Indiana Arts Commission Region 8 Partners have announced that the Advisory Panel Meeting for FY 2013 grant applications will be held on Friday, April 20th, 2012 at 12:15 p.m. at the City Showers Building located at 401 N. Morton Street, Bloomington, Indiana, in the Council Chambers.


Advisory Panel Meetings are held in regions across the state for the purpose of publicly discussing and evaluating grant applications for funding from the Indiana Arts Commission.  Advisory panel sessions are open to the public for observation and may be recorded. IAC supports the open panel process because it provides all Hoosiers an opportunity to observe the process by which public funds for the arts are distributed. It also allows applicants to directly hear panelist’ comments regarding grant proposals, clarifies the review process, provides an opportunity for applicants to learn about proposed projects in other areas of the state and strengthens future projects.


Each advisory panel is composed of individuals from across the region. This year’s Region 8 panel includes representatives from five counties.  Panel members are experienced artists, knowledgeable in the arts and/or arts management, arts educators, and arts administrators whose credentials have been approved by the Regional Arts Partner, and who volunteer their time and expertise.

The panel will review the applications in the order listed below. Exact times for the adjudication of a particular application are not available but it is expected that the discussion for each application will last from 7-15 minutes. To efficiently manage the meeting and to maintain the integrity of the evaluative process, there is no provision for public comment or questions during the grant advisory panel session. Applicants and panelists will have no direct contact or conversation about the evaluation and disposition of applications, before, during, or after the advisory panel meeting.
