Hamilton-Wenham Cultural Council

The Hamilton Wenham Cultural Council is part of a grassroots cultural funding network supporting community-based projects in the arts, humanities, and sciences annually. Each year, the council is allocated funding from the Massachusetts Cultural Council. Through a competitive grant process, the Hamilton Wenham Cultural Council awards funds to arts, humanities, and interpretive science projects in our communities.
