Hamilton-Wenham Cultural Council Accepting Grant Applications Through October 14

The Hamilton-Wenham Cultural Council (HWCC) has set an October 14, 2019 deadline for organizations, schools, and individuals to apply for grants that support cultural activities in the community. The application process takes place online, at www.massculturalcouncil.org.

These grants can support a variety of artistic projects and activities in Hamilton and Wenham -- including exhibits, festivals, field trips, short-term artist residencies, or performances in schools, workshops, and lectures.

The HW Cultural Council is part of a network of 329 Local Cultural Councils serving all 351 cities and towns in the Commonwealth. The LCC Program is the largest grassroots cultural funding network in the nation, supporting thousands of community-based projects in the arts, sciences and humanities every year. The state legislature provides an annual appropriation to the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency, which then allocates funds to each community.

The HW Cultural Council will distribute about $10,500 in grants for programs taking place in 2020. Previously funded projects include:programs for all ages at the HW Library, music and drama support in the public schools, and the League of Women Voter’s Civics Bee.
