GILL CULTURAL COUNCIL SEEKS FUNDING PROPOSALS

Proposals for community-oriented arts, humanities, and science programs due October 17, 2022. Deadline extended to October 19th.

The Massachusetts Cultural Council has set an October 17th deadline for organizations, schools, and individuals to apply for grants that support cultural activities in the community. The Gill Local Cultural Council has $5,500 to distribute in 2023.

According to Gill Cultural Council spokesperson Patricia Crosby, these grants can support a variety of artistic projects and activities in Gill and surrounding communities. The Council encourages applications for both online and live events. Gill seeks to bring performers, artists, historians, naturalists, speakers, musicians, and workshop presenters to venues in town or nearby towns. Some of the organizations the Gill LCC has granted funds to in recent years include the Slate Memorial Library, the Gill Elementary School, the Gill/Montague Council on Aging, the Gill Historical Commission, the Gill Agricultural Commission, and the Antenna Cloud Farm concert series.

In 2022, the Gill Cultural Council distributed $5,270 in grants to support eleven different community projects.

Application forms and complete information about the Local Cultural Council Program are available online at www.mass-culture.org If you have questions about Gill projects or applications, email lcc@gillmass.org.

The Gill 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 Mass Cultural Council, a state agency, which then allocates funds to each community.
