How grant recommendations are made
Recommenders establish their own processes for assessing Exhibition Assistance applications and making grant recommendations. A jury, committee, curator or other staff may take on this role for the recommender.
Recommenders base their funding recommendations on the quality of the artist’s work, OAC priority groups and other funding priorities they may establish.
Recommenders in zones 1 through 4 may recommend no more than 40% of their Exhibition Assistance grant budget to artists exhibiting in their own spaces. Northern recommenders, in zones 5 and 6, may recommend up to 80%.
