2. Establish the Assessment Committee

  • Call for assessor nominations
  • Ensure the make-up of the assessment committee meets CCS requirements:
    • Local councils may appoint up to two representatives to the assessment committee. 
    • Each community arts council in the local area has the right to have a representative on the assessment committee. 
    • Community representatives - ideally membership of the committee should reflect the make-up of the local community, eg young people, recent migrants, Asian residents, and local Māori and Pasifika peoples.
    • At least one member must be of Māori descent and have local knowledge of Māori arts activity.
  • Provide the assessment committee with the CCS Assessors Guide.
  • Book or run assessment committee training workshops
  • Consult your assessment committee regarding promotional plans for CCS in your community.
