FY22 Local Priorities

Natick Cultural Council (NCC) supports activities that contribute to the cultural vitality of the community. NCC grants can be used to create art, celebrate culture, conduct a music performance, bring to life a creative or new idea, and for other community-oriented activities in the arts, humanities and sciences.

This year (2020-2021) the council will prioritize the following projects:

1. Projects that benefit Natick and Natick residents.

2. Projects that serve a wide range of audiences in the Natick community.

3. Projects that focus on fine and performing arts in our schools.

4. Public art projects.

5. Visual and performing arts projects.

7. If the project is an event, preference will be given to projects that have a date, time, and venue (virtual or actual).
