The Gill Cultural Council has set an October 16 deadline for organizations, schools, and individuals to apply for grants that support community-oriented arts, humanities, and science programs.
These grants support a variety of projects and activities in Gill and the surrounding towns -- including exhibits, festivals, performances, short-term artist residencies, workshops, and lectures.
The Gill Cultural Council is part of a network of Local Cultural Councils serving 351 cities and towns in the Commonwealth. The LCC Program is the largest grassroots cultural funding network in the nation. The state legislature provides an annual appropriation to the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency, which then allocates funds to each community.
This year, the Gill Cultural Council expects to distribute about $4,000 in grants. Previously funded projects include workshops at the town library, concerts on the town common, and a theater program at the elementary school.
Application forms and more information about the Local Cultural Council Program are available online at www.mass-culture.org. Call Sue Kramer at 413-863-4621 with questions.
