Shrewsbury Cultural Council seeks funding proposals

Shrewsbury – The Shrewsbury Cultural Council (SCC) has set an Oct. 15 postmark deadline for organizations, schools and individuals to apply for grants that support a variety of artistic projects and performances in schools, workshops, and lectures in the community.

The SCC 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.

This year, the SCC will distribute about $6,000 in grants. Previously funded projects include Shrewsbury Public Library's “Wild About Reading Balloon Literacy Program,” the five-star concert series at Tower Hill Botanic Garden, Arts on the Green by the First Congregational Church of Shrewsbury, and “Shakespeare Now – A Midsummer Night's Dream” at Oak Middle School.

For specific guidelines and complete information on the SCC, contact Joanne Hynes at 508-245-8803 or joanne.hynes@gmail.com. Applications are available online at http://www.mass-culture.org/lcc_public.aspx.
