Chelmsford Cultural Council

The Chelmsford Cultural Council is committed to funding a diverse cross-section of activities. We support a variety of art forms, works of local artists, environmental education projects and collaborative proposals that bring together artists, organizations, and local cultural groups in projects that serve Chelmsford and the surrounding communities.

The Council usually meets on the second Wednesday of the month at 7:00 p.m. at the Chelmsford Center for the Arts, 1A North Road, Chelmsford MA in the first floor conference room. All meetings are open to the public.
