Buckland Cultural Council funds West County arts and humanities projects and events through small but meaningful grants to artists and presenters. It is our mission to support the cultural offerings of the area for a wide age range of people including seniors and youth, and to improve the quality of life for students in, residents of, and visitors to West County. Artists, schools and community groups can apply.
Local Cultural Councils grant monies provided by the Massachusetts Cultural Council to fund art, science, and humanities projects, performances, and activities.
Applications must be submitted electronically by the application deadline to be considered. The Buckland Cultural Council will meet soon thereafter to review applications and respond in a timely manner. Accepted applicants are asked to submit press for activities/events to the council in advance so that we can promote your programs through our Buckland Cultural Council Facebook page. We also require that you credit the Buckland Cultural Council in your written materials and at produced events. The average grant value in FY20 was $200.
