Jury

The City of Barrie Cultural Grant applications are judged by a panel of individuals with significant expertise in the arts. City of Barrie staff select these individuals from other municipalities across the province to participate in the jury process.  If you know of an individual that has extensive education and/or experience in the arts and you believe they would be an objective juror you are welcome to recommend them by completing the Jury Panel - Recommendation Form and submitting it to the Economic & Creative Development Department at invest@barrie.ca

Personal information collected as part of this application process is under the authority of the Municipal Act, 2001, S.O. 2001, c.25, as amended and will be used for the purpose of evaluating submissions for the Cultural Grant Program by the jury panel and City staff. When the process is complete, the names of the individuals that received funding, the amount they received and in which category - whether project or operating - will be made public.   

No other personal information will be released without the express written permission of the grant applicant. Questions about this collection should be directed to Amanda Dyke, 70 Collier Street, Barrie, Ontario L4M 4T5, (705) 739-4220 Ext. 4593.
