Support Arts and Culture in St. Louis

Become a Citizen Review Panelist or Discipline Reader

Volunteer for the Regional Arts Commission of St. Louis (RAC) by serving as a Citizen Review Panelist or Discipline Reader. By reviewing grant applications for RAC, you’ll get a unique look at the grantmaking process. It is also an opportunity to learn more about the St. Louis arts and culture community and the many creative ways artists and organizations are making a difference locally.

RAC has two major annual grants programs:

  • Organizational Grants
    • General Operating Support
    • Program Support
  • Individual Artists Grants
    • Artists Support Grants
    • Artist Fellowships

Serving as a Citizen Review Panelist or Discipline Reader can be an exciting and rewarding volunteer experience! You will have the chance to network with professionals from various backgrounds and an opportunity to learn more about grant writing, evaluation, and individual artists and organizational development while supporting the communities in which you live and work. Starting in 2019, RAC will be offering an honorarium for panelists and readers in recognition of the time committed to reading grant applications and attending panel meetings.
