From the Wellesley Cultural Council:
The Wellesley Cultural Council is accepting applications from artists, performers, educators and/or organizations for projects that enrich the cultural life of the residents of Wellesley. Applicants may seek funding for community-oriented programs in the arts, humanities and sciences to be presented in 2019, including but not limited to lectures, performances, exhibits, workshops, and/or festivals. Completed applications must be submitted online and are due by October 15, 2018. Late and/or incomplete applications will not be reviewed for funding. All applications must have a confirmed venue to be considered.
The Wellesley Cultural Council is a part of a network of 329 Local Cultural Councils serving all 351 cities and towns in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The state legislature provides an annual appropriation to the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency, which then allocates funds to each Local Cultural Council.
Last year, the Wellesley Cultural Council distributed $4,600 in grants for the 2018 grant cycle. Projects that received funding included: the Wellesley Choral Society’s 70th Anniversary Concert, the Wellesley Historical Society’s “Winter Wednesdays”, True Story Inc., “Stories of Motherhood”, Tai Shalom-Kobi’s “A Tribute to Women; Composers from Around the World”, Wellesley Council on Aging’s “Storytelling Workshop for Seniors”, John Root’s “Organic Gardening for Everyone” and more.
Applications must be submitted electronically. To access the online application and to learn more about the Local Cultural Council program visit www.mass-culture.org. Questions can be directed to [email protected].
