The Wellfleet Cultural Council is a town committee of volunteers appointed by the Board of Selectmen. Our purpose is to promote and maintain the vitality of local cultural resources and to ensure that these resources are shared within the Wellfleet community. We distribute funds received from the Massachusetts Cultural Council as grants and are committed to funding a diverse cross-section of activities. We support a broad variety of projects: the on-going work of individual artists, programs in the interpretive sciences, humanities, fine and expressive arts, collaborative proposals that bring together people working in the arts, sciences and humanities with local non-profit organizations, community and cultural groups, as well as projects that serve specific populations (youth, elders, low-income, year-round population).
News & Events
For the 2016 Grant Cycle we have an allocation of $4400 from the Massachusetts Cultural Council to distribute. In addition, we have received $2000 from the Town of Wellfleet to supplement our state funds. We are grateful for this generous municipal and community support to fund additional worthy programs and projects that enrich our citizens.
