SHREWSBURY – The Shrewsbury Cultural Council will distribute its largest amount of grant funding in its history this year, sending $18,768 into the community. 

Before it does that, though, the council is seeking grant proposals for community-oriented arts, humanities and science programs. 

Proposals are due by Friday, Oct. 15 at 11:59 p.m. 

In the past, the Shrewsbury Cultural Council has funded projects like the Assabet Valley Mastersingers, Arts on the Green, Bad News Jazz & Blues Orchestra and EcoTarium Days. 

Bad News Jazz and Blues perform a free concert at the Scandanavian Athletic Club on July 12, 2021.

The council has said the funds could support projects and activities, such as exhibits, festivals, short-term artist residencies and school performances.
