About our Peer Assessors

Peer Assessors provide transparent and independent reviews, moderation and recommendations on applications to Arts Queensland’s various investment programs.

Arts Queensland’s assessor arrangements recently moved from a fixed panel of 100 peer assessors to a rolling approach. This means that following the recent EOI process to establish an immediate pool of peer assessors, appointments will be made on an ongoing basis to continually grow the depth of assessor experience and expertise.

The change to rolling appointments to the peer assessment panel brings Queensland in line with national best practice.
