The Concord Cultural Council is a non-profit organization appointed by the Board of Selectmen of the Town of Concord. It supports community cultural projects through its two grant programs.
1). The Council awards grants to local organizations that adhere to the Massachusetts Cultural Council guidelines as well as the local Concord Cultural Council guidelines. Local and regional artists and arts organizations are eligible to apply for grants. The Council places priority on new initiatives and gives preference to artists and events that benefit Concord.
2). The Council awards Field Trip Grants to school groups as ticket subsidies to attend cultural events.
Individuals and organizations may apply for partial funding for presentations that feature workshops, lectures, performances, exhibitions, festivals, science education, music and the arts. The Council also encourages local artists who have not had an opportunity to present their work in the community to develop ideas for consideration that would result in the possibility of their being given a stipend, i.e. music students performing for local audiences.
The Massachusetts Cultural Council (MCC, www.massculturalcouncil.org) is the governing organization from which funds are derived and its mission is “to promote excellence, access, education, and diversity in the arts, humanities, and interpretive sciences in order to improve the quality of life for all Massachusetts residents and to contribute to the economic vitality of our communities.” The MCC website’s link to Local Cultural Councils lists the guidelines to which local communities must adhere. In addition, the Concord Cultural Council Guidelines include specific criteria to enhance and encourage events offered to various groups in Concord.
All applications for grants from the Concord Cultural Council must meet the following guidelines:
Please send applications to: Concord Cultural Council, Concord Town Hall, 22 Monument Square, Concord, MA 01742. Any questions may be directed to Chair Di Clymer at 978-369-7172 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Please do not send Standard Grant applications or Field Trip Grant applications to the MCC.
