Andover Cultural Council
The Massachusetts state legislature provides an annual appropriation for arts, humanities, and interpretive science projects to the Massachusetts Cultural Council (MCC), which in turn, allocates funds to the Andover Cultural Council (ACC) for the Andover community. The ACC then reviews and awards the MCC funds to those projects of quality that provide the greatest local benefit.
The ACC is committed to reaching all members of the Andover community through supporting a cross-section of activities, including jazz, classical music concerts, vocal performances, live theatre, public art installations, storytelling, programs aimed specifically at families, schoolchildren, and senior citizens, and more. We partner with other groups and organizations in town, to help promote a lively cultural atmosphere, and we serve as advocates for the arts through community outreach and publicity. We are a group of volunteers, appointed by the Board of Selectmen for two consecutive, three-year terms. Members of the Council include people with a variety of experience, some with backgrounds in the arts, humanities or interpretive sciences, but we share a passionate belief in the importance of the arts and culture in our lives and a commitment to enhancing the cultural vitality of Andover.
