Boylston Cultural Council

The Boylston Cultural Council (BCC) is a volunteer committee of local residents. Our council is appointed by the Board of Selectmen for (3) year terms.

Our mission is to enrich the cultural life of our citizens, by supporting diversified programs in the arts, humanities, and sciences. The efforts of our council aim to serve audiences of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities. Each year, our council gathers input from our community and develops funding priorities based on this feedback. Annually funded by the Massachusetts Cultural Council (MCC), the BCC is able to support programs that can enrich the cultural life of the Boylston community.

Approved programs are funded via the Direct Grant process.
