Each year, the Arizona Commission on the Arts convenes volunteer panelists from across the state to review grant applications. These meetings are open to the public and offer a prime opportunity for current and prospective applicants to observe the panel review process and learn more about the qualities of successful, competitive grant applications.

Panel review meetings will be held at the offices of the Arizona Commission on the Arts (417 W Roosevelt, Phoenix, AZ 85003)¬†at 10:00 am, beginning with a panel orientation and general business. Grant review discussion will begin at approximately 10:30 am. Can’t make it to our office in Phoenix? You can also listen in to a live-stream of the panels online.
