Reflections of a state folklorist
This fall Mass Cultural Council is offering three grant opportunities for Massachusetts artists and individuals working in the cultural sector:
Cultural Sector Recovery Grants for Individuals
This one-time pandemic recovery program provides unrestricted grants of $5,000 for artists, creatives, and gig workers to support recovery from the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and set a path for growth.
Deadline: November 1, 2022
Local Cultural Council Program
Every community in Massachusetts is served by a Local Cultural Council (LCC) that funds local arts and cultural projects. Most LCCs accept applications from individuals. Grants are a minimum of $250 and applications are made directly to each LCC.
Deadline: October 17, 2022
STARS Residencies bring students and teachers together with practicing artists, scientists, and scholars to create rich cultural experiences in the classroom. Any Massachusetts school serving grades K-12 is eligible to host one residency per school year and schools, teaching artists, and cultural organizations are eligible to apply. STARS Residencies offer a minimum grant of $2,500 and last a minimum of three days.
Deadline: October 25, 2022
