Douglas Cultural Council
The Douglas Cultural Council strives to serve all members of the community – from early childhood to senior citizen – by bringing the arts. culture, and social sciences directly to the town, so that they may experience it firsthand.
We hope that by planting the seeds of arts and culture, our town will grow in an appreciation of culture, and will help foster unity among all citizens.
Of particular interest to Douglas residents, according to our interest surveys, is music – particularly live music, to be played at various venues throughout the community. We also fund historical programming, activities for children’s summer reading program at the Library, and entertainment and educational programs at the Adult Social Center. Any musicians or bands (or other performance artists) are urged to apply to our LCC. See our Council Priorities for specifics when applying.

The Douglas Cultural Council accepts online grant proposals only.
We are interested in a variety of grant applications in order to provide maximum benefit to the people of Douglas. Programs for toddlers, public art, and entertainment for adults and seniors are welcome. The Douglas Cultural Council has funded field trips or visits to schools in the past that fit our criteria.
According to the results of our public interest survey, we encourage performance artists and musicians to apply for grants with Douglas.
Musicians applying should include a link to a video or audio sample of their music or performance art in the supplemental materials page of the application. If only a hard copy is available, please mail it under separate cover, and indicate on your online application that you will be mailing it. Please include your application ID with your mailed materials so we can match it to your application. Mail the materials and the note to:
