The Mid-Cape Cultural Council promotes and supports the arts, humanities and interpretive sciences in concert with the towns of Barnstable and Yarmouth. The grant proposals that we fund are for cultural projects with local connections to the Mid-Cape region. While we welcome any community based project, we encourage proposals that are innovative, result from collaborations among individuals or organizations, and leverage additional funds from other sources.
Meetings usually take place at 6:30 PM on the third Wednesday of the month at Barnstable Town Hall in Hyannis.
The Town of Barnstable is the fiscal agent for the council and provides limited administrative support. Our Town Hall contact is Melissa Hersh, Arts & Culture Coordinator, 508/862-4767.
