Mid-Cape Cultural Council

The Mid-Cape Cultural Council promotes and supports the arts, humanities and interpretive sciences to benefit people in the towns of Barnstable and Yarmouth. The Town of Barnstable is our fiscal agent. Our Barnstable Town Hall liaison is Melissa Hersh, Arts & Culture Coordinator, Growth Management Dept., 508/862-4767.

We welcome any community based, cultural proposal benefiting either or both of the towns we serve. We encourage proposals that are innovative, result from collaborations among individuals or organizations, and leverage additional funds from other sources.
