The Chicopee Cultural Council is part of a state-wide network of locally appointed volunteers who seek to fund programs in the arts, humanities, or interpretive sciences. We fund projects that will benefit the residents of Chicopee, while providing a balance in the types of programs offered and the audiences served. Some of the programs funded by the Council include concerts, art exhibits, theatre productions, writing and painting workshops, festivals, speakers, and field trips for school-age children.
The Council has 11 members: Chair Sharon Jacobson-Deragon, Treasurer Hope Quinlan, Secretary Mary Partyka, Publicity Co-Chairs Nancy Dulchinos and Barbara Dumont, John Dumont, Chung Liu, Susan Morando McAndrew, Debra Sutherland, Eleanor Gay, and Michael Sutherland.
