Evaluation Committees

To carry out its mission, the Conseil relies on the skills and experience of seasoned evaluators, artists, or cultural workers in each of the disciplines it supports. Our evaluation committee members are trailblazers who take the pulse of their field to identify emerging trends and issues. 

Evaluation committees assess applications submitted to the Conseil’s various grant programs. Committee members are also asked to provide input on multidisciplinary matters related to their expertise. And they are responsible for recommending the finalists for the Grand Prix du Conseil des arts de Montréal.

Each committee is chaired by a member of the Conseil and is made up of three to nine artists or arts professionals selected by the Conseil. The term is three years, and committee members must adhere to the code of ethics governing the evaluation process.
