Proposals for community-oriented arts, humanities, and science programs are due October 15th for the 2020 calendar year. 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, such as:

  • Arts -- including crafts, performing, visual, media, folk, design, literary and interdisciplinary arts
  • Humanities -- including history, social studies, philosophy, criticism, and literature
  • Interpretive Sciences -- engaging people in learning about nature, science, and technology in ways that connect to their lives


The application process is 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.


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 Town of Weston matches the state funding for Weston's Cultural Council.


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