FY23 Local Priorities

This year (2022-2023) the council will prioritize the following projects:

1. Projects related to the arts, humanities, and sciences, which are specified by the Massachusetts Cultural Council as follows:

– Arts refer to the creation of work in the crafts and performing, visual, media, folk, design, literary, and inter-disciplinary arts. In addition, they also include the presentation and preservation of, and education about works in these disciplines.
– Humanities are types of learning that deal with human values and aspirations, human thought and culture, language, and creativity. Examples include, but are not limited to, history, social studies, philosophy, criticism, and literature.
– Sciences are types of learning that deal with nature, science, and technology in ways that explain how they relate to people’s lives. Some organizations that conduct this type of activity include aquariums, botanical gardens, nature centers, natural history museums, planetariums, and science centers.
For more information, see the description under “CRITERIA” on the MCC website: https://massculturalcouncil.org/communities/local-cultural-council-program/application-process/.

2. Projects that support Natick-based artists.

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

The projects, performances, and activities may be conducted in-person following the state guidelines for COVID-19 or online. Preference will be given to projects that are well planned and meet the council priorities.
