Revere Cultural Council

The Revere Cultural Council (RCC) is composed of diverse members appointed by the mayor and approved by the city council. The RCC seeks to collaborate with local and neighboring organizations on programs which will elevate Revere’s diverse, extensive heritage and cultural background. We also seek to make the arts more accessible by providing Revere’s artists and cultural groups with opportunities including grant funding. We aim to serve all segments of Revere’s population, including underrepresented communities with a focus on lesser-heard voices.
