Minnesota State Arts Board — Grant Reviewer

As a Grant Reviewer on the Minnesota State Arts Board, I evaluated and awarded grants to artists and arts organizations, ensuring fairness and equity. Collaborating with a diverse panel, I assessed applications based on artistic merit, impact, and alignment with funding priorities. I contributed insights, recommendations, and fostered community partnerships, strengthening Minnesota's arts ecosystem. This experience deepened my knowledge, refined my evaluation and grant management skills, and fueled my passion for supporting and championing the arts.
