Evaluat­ion Committe­es

Acting as scouts, the members of the Evaluation Committees take the pulse of their community to more effectively identify trends and issues. These experts in their field play an essential role in evaluating projects for the Conseil and making informed decisions.


  • Judge the applications submitted to the Conseil’s various grant programs.
  • Make decisions on multidisciplinary projects that fall within their expertise.
  • Recommend finalists for the Grand Prix du Conseil des arts de Montréal.


The Conseil has 10 evaluation committees representing the various artistic disciplines. Each committee is chaired by a member of the Conseil and is composed of three to nine artists or arts professionals selected by the Conseil. Their term of office is three years. Each member must adhere to the Code of Ethics governing the evaluation process.
