Phillipston Cultural Council
The Phillipston Cultural Council supports a variety of programs in our community that promote and foster an appreciation for the arts, humanities and sciences. We are committed to funding a diverse sampling of programs in each of these areas.
In the past, we have worked collaboratively with the Phillipston Memorial School and the Narragansett Regional School System, and with local artists, entertainers, and organizations to bring quality cultural programs to the families of Phillipston.

FY22 Local Priorities
Based on community feedback and past experience with Cultural Council applications, the Phillipston Cultural Council has developed the following set of guidelines.
In addition to the state criteria, we will evaluate and give priority to:
– Applicants that have made prior arrangements for a local venue
– We will try to fully fund as many applications as possible; where we make the decision to partially fund a project, we will give priority to those projects that will still be able to move forward with partial funding
– Applicants will be responsible for their own publicity, as we have limited resources to handle this
– We will try to fund a variety of projects that serve many different age groups, including children, teens, adults and seniors; we will also attempt to serve as many venues as possible, including the Library, school(s), the Council on Aging luncheons,
– All else being equal, priority will be given to local applicants whose project pertains to, affects, and can be easily accessed by townspeople and will directly enhance the cultural strength of our community
– Positive reviews and letters of recommendation will be considered favorably
Although the online application initiative launches on September 1, 2016, we will continue to accept paper applications, as well. The choice of online or paper application will not affect the evaluation process.
