  1. Projects must take place between December 1, 2020 and December 31, 2021.
  2. All performances by professional artists, humanists and cultural organizations must take place in the City of Fall River or reflect a collaborative partnership within the Greater Fall River Area, with a significant benefit to the citizens of Fall River.

For these purposes, stipends up to $2,000.00 for local artists will be considered. The FRCC is particularly interested in projects that will enhance visibility of art and culture in the Fall River Community. Large scale projects of this nature may exceed the typical $2,000 limit for local artists. Artists are required to submit specific dimensions of their artistic work, a complete list of supplies and costs of materials, and the location of their project to be approved by the Fall River Cultural Council.
