For advice about visual arts and heritage development we are able to call on individual peers to provide accurate and up to date advice, knowledge of industry best practice and the ability to make fair and informed assessments of funding applications. In 2015 M&G NSW moved from a reference committee structure to a more flexible model giving us access to a broad range of expertise through a Register of Peers.
Our Register of Peers is made up of people who work or volunteer in the museum, gallery or Aboriginal cultural centre sector across NSW. Some may have specific art form, cultural heritage or technical skills that relate to our work. Others will have relevant knowledge, involvements and/or experience to provide accurate and up to date advice, and to make fair and informed assessments of funding applications.
In addition to the panel we now have three committees; the Aboriginal Reference Committee, the Standards Review Committee, and the IMAGinE Review Committee who are responsible for judging the award nominations we receive each and every year.
