WILMINGTON, MA — The Wilmington Cultural Council has set an October 17, 2016 postmark deadline for organizations, schools and individuals to apply for grants that support cultural activities in the community.
According to Council Co-Chair, Jean Chang, these grants can support a variety of artistic projects and activities in Wilmington — including exhibits, festivals, field trips, short-term artist residencies or performances in schools, workshops and lectures. Proposals must fall in at least one of the following areas — arts, humanities or science.
The Wilmington 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.
This year, the Wilmington Cultural Council will distribute about $4,900 in grants. Previously funded projects include: Museum passes, musical performances and plays for seniors and disabled, painting workshops, and lectures.
For the first time ever, the application process will be done paperless and completely online. The application form and additional information can be found HERE.
