Salem, MA, September 1, 2017 – The Salem Cultural Council is accepting applications from organizations, schools, and individuals for grants that support cultural activities in the community. The application deadline is October 16. These grants can support a variety of artistic projects and activities in Salem, including exhibits, festivals, field trips, short-term artist residencies, or performances in schools, workshops, and lectures.
The Salem Cultural Council is part of a network of 329 Local Cultural Councils (LCC) 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.
Last year, the Salem Cultural Council distributed more than $14,000 in grants to the community, supporting projects/programs such the Salem Culturefest, the Salem Arts Festival and various artists within the community.
