Boxford Cultural Council

The Boxford Cultural Council is a community organization supported through funding from the Massachusetts Cultural Council. The BCC is made up of community members who vet and vote on grant applications submitted to us on an annual basis. We believe that a strong presence of the arts, science and humanities is essential to building a vibrant community and a thriving educational system. Our primary objective is to develop and fund projects that weave these elements into the fabric of our community. The BCC actively encourages local artisans, musicians, teachers and school organizations to submit grants for consideration to the Cultural Council.
