Volunteer in the Arts - Be a Panelist

Each year the Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance seeks individuals to serve on a Pennsylvania Partners in the Arts (PPA) Advisory Panel.

Serving on a panel can be an exciting and rewarding volunteer experience! You'll have a chance to meet new people from a variety of backgrounds while supporting the communities in which you live and/or work. Panelists get a unique look at the grantmaking process and learn about the many creative ways artists and arts organizations are making a difference locally.

Applications to serve as a panelist for 2018 grant panels are now closed. Please check back for information about serving on Project Stream panels in Spring 2019.

If you have any questions about becoming a panelist, please email Allie Vanyur at

The Project Stream and Program Stream grants initiative is made possible through the Pennsylvania Partners in the Arts of the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency. They are funded by the citizens of Pennsylvania through an annual legislative appropriation, and administered locally by the Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance. The Pennsylvania Council on the Arts is supported by the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
