The Arts & Culture Grants Review Committee acts as an “arms-length” peer review and advisory body to the North Vancouver Recreation & Culture Commission. It reviews all grant applications and provides recommendations to the governing body of the North Vancouver Recreation & Culture Commission.
The Grants Review Committee is a volunteer body, consisting of five impartial and qualified members with appropriate experience and expertise in the arts as well as cultural and community-based practices. All members of the Committee are appointed by motion of the North Vancouver Recreation & Culture Commission and must be residents of North Vancouver. Committee Members are initially appointed for a two-year term, however appointments can be extended to a maximum of two consecutive terms. The composition, roles and responsibilities the Grants Review Committee are governed by a procedural Terms of Reference.
Balance, Equity & Inclusion
Every effort is made to ensure:
that the Committee represents a breadth of experience and expertise in and across a wide range of artistsic practices and cultural traditions: visual, studio and gallery arts, community-engaged arts practices, music, dance, theatre and other performing arts, community events, cultural celebrations, community public art projects, as well as the local not-for-profit sector generally.
that openings on the Committee are made available and accessible to all resident populations in North Vancouver, and that the final composition of the Committee reflects a balance of diverse populations, including - to the extent possible - populations that have been traditionally marginalized or underserved.
