Proposals for community-oriented arts, humanities, and science programs due Monday, October 15.


The Marshfield Cultural Council has set an October 15 deadline for organizations, schools, and individuals to apply for grants that support cultural activities in the community.


These grants can support a variety of artistic projects and activities in Marshfield -- including exhibits, festivals, field trips, short-term artist residencies, or performances in schools, workshops, and lectures.


The Marshfield 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.


While this year’s local allotment is currently being determined by the state, last year the Marshfield Cultural council had $7,200 to allocate within our town. Previously funded projects include science and cultural enrichment performances at the five elementary schools, backyard farm and garden lectures through the Marshfield Agricultural Commission, music programming, cooking demonstrations, and a variety of other local programs.
