Weston Cultural Council Seeks Funding Proposals

Proposals for community-oriented arts, humanities, and science programs are due October 16th. Organizations, schools, and individuals may apply for grants that support cultural activities in the community. These grants can support a variety of artistic projects and activities in Weston, including exhibits, festivals, field trips, short-term artist residencies, or performances in schools, workshops, and lectures.


The Weston Cultural Council is part of a network of 329 Local Cultural Councils serving all 351 cities and towns in the Commonwealth. The LCC Program is the largest grassroots cultural funding network in the nation, supporting thousands of community-based projects in the arts, sciences, and humanities every year. The state legislature provides an annual appropriation to the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency, which then allocates funds to each community.


The application process is now online. Applicants may access the online application at www.mass-culture.org. This is also where you will find any funding priorities or additional requirements beyond the state guidelines.


Previously funded projects include costumes for The Friendly Society’s "A Christmas Carol," Land’s Sake farm education programming, and a chamber music concert.


For questions about council priorities and complete information on the Weston Cultural Council, please contact Tricia Liu at culturalcouncil [at] westonmass.org with questions. For more information about the new online process, please visit www.mass-culture.org for resources.
