Adjudication Process

We are seeking jurors for the 2023-2024 CKHF grant program!

CKHF grant applications are adjudicated using an impartial, peer assessment process that engages stakeholders from across Kingston as jury members.  One of the key objectives for the CKHF is to “enhance Kingston’s distinctive identity, enrich the cultural life of residents, and attract newcomers, audiences, and visitors from around the world.”   In support of this, jury members are community volunteers, with a range of knowledge, skills, and experiences, who are passionate about Kingston’s cultural heritage, and are reflective of the gender, demographic, cultural, and neurodiversity of Kingston itself. 


The CKHF Adjudication Chair oversees two separate adjudication committees – one for operating grants, the other for project grants.  Jury members may serve for a maximum of 3-consecutive years.  Please note, all CKHF jurors will be required to sign a confidentiality agreement and a conflict of interest disclosure statement.


All members of the committees will:


be committed to excellence in cultural resource management;


be committed to fiscal responsibility;


be committed to the development of Kingston’s diverse cultural resources;


have an understanding, interest, and appreciation of cultural heritage in all forms;


bring vision, open-mindedness, and generosity of spirit to all deliberations;


declare conflicts of interest; and


provide fair and objective opinions.
