Concord Local Cultural Council
Concord Cultural Council Members:
Di Clymer, co-chair; Janet Silver co-chair; Maggie Terris, Laurence Constable, Patricia Bruttomesso, Daniel Schrager, Debbie Canally and Victoria Mulligan

The Concord Cultural Council is a non-profit organization appointed by the Board of Selectmen of the Town of Concord. The Massachusetts Cultural Council (MCC, www.massculturalcouncil.org) is the governing organization from which funds are derived and its mission is “to promote excellence, access, education, and diversity in the arts, humanities, and interpretive sciences in order to improve the quality of life for all Massachusetts residents and to contribute to the economic vitality of our communities.” The MCC website’s link to Local Cultural Councils lists the guidelines to which local communities must adhere. In addition, the Concord Cultural Council Guidelines include specific criteria to enhance and encourage events offered to various groups in Concord. This year $4,300 was received. ~The town budgeted an additional $2,000 to enhance this fund, enabling the CCC to enrich its support of the many cultural projects requesting funding.

The Concord Cultural Council supports community cultural projects through its two grant programs

1). The Council awards grants to local organizations that adhere to the Massachusetts Cultural Council guidelines as well as the local Concord Cultural Council guidelines. Local and regional artists and arts organizations are eligible to apply for grants. The Council places priority on new initiatives and gives preference to artists and events that benefit Concord.

2). The Council awards Field Trip Grants to school groups as ticket subsidies to attend cultural events.
