Wayland Cultural Council invites you to apply to us with your ideas for new projects, concerts, art shows or talks on the arts, humanities and the sciences. The activities should aim to interest and benefit the diversity of ages and interests in our town. We are looking for new and creative events to fund with our grant funds.
We support programs in culture and the arts that are important to our town and to neighboring communities. Each year Wayland is allotted about $4300. This budget is sometimes expanded through the generosity of private donors. In both FY14 and FY 15, we were able to fund 14 applications. Our FY16 deadline is October 15th 2015.
Wayland Cultural Council always welcomes new members to the board. If you are interested in becoming a Council member, please contact the Chair, Jonathan Saxton, at email@example.com. We have several meetings in the fall, during the granting process, and then a few more scattered over the spring and summer. It is a great way to be involved in bringing quality arts and culture to our town!

News & Events
The Wayland Cultural Council maintains the Network for Arts and Culture (NAC) Gallery to connect artists to artists, and art and cultural events to the Wayland community.
The NAC Gallery is in the hallway outside the Selectmen’s Meeting Room in the Wayland Town Building and is intended as a community resource for local cultural news and information about WCC grantees and grant funded events. Contact Chair Jonathan Saxton at firstname.lastname@example.org with requests to show your artwork or information about posting fliers. Follow WCC on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/waylandculturalcouncil.
Wayland Cultural Council is one of 329 Massachusetts Local Cultural Councils that support thousands of community-based projects in the arts, humanities, and sciences throughout the state annually. Each LCC is unique, because the board considers granting funds to artists, cultural events and projects, which draw on the interests and talents of its community. We always welcome new ideas for activities and events to sponsor, and currently we are actively seeking community input for new things to sponsor.
