How to become a peer

How to become a peer

Complete a nomination form via the Council's online system. The nomination form captures information about your arts experience and knowledge, which helps us determine which grants and arts practices you could assess. Council staff review and shortlist the nominations, and recommend a Pool of peers to the Board of the Australia Council for approval. Peers in the Pool are our first port of call when forming an assessment panel.

Peers remain in the Pool for three years, or participate in six assessment meetings, whichever limit is reached first. They can re-nominate to be a peer after two years.

If you have never used the Australia Council’s online system before, download the instructions here:
