The selection process for Launch 2 Grant Artist was reviewed by the team. The recommendation is as follows:
Launch 2 will solely depend on the number of artists who apply.
The goal is to offer a balanced, democratic, transparent, win-win method. Upon receiving applications we will promptly assess the requests for region space and duration. Requests for specific region sizes will not always guaranteed.
The Curator Concept could be once again successful to accommodate all applicants for Launch 2, eliminating the need for score-sheets.
In the event we are unable to accommodate all grants using the CC method we would call upon Launch 1 grant artists.
•First Choice - Preferred Curator Concept awarding all who apply •Second Choice - Call upon Launch 1 Grant Artists to use the score sheet award system In the event we call upon Launch 1 GA who have all agreed to this process, applications will be presented and scored anonymously.
