Revere Cultural Council
The Revere Cultural Council (RCC) consists of Revere residents who are invested in the city and are primarily focused on making Revere a better place in which to live. It is a diverse group both age-wise and sexual orientation. Each of the members of the RCC is appointed by the mayor and the appointment is approved by the city council.
The goal of the RCC members is to expose residents to varying art forms that they would otherwise never have the opportunity to see. The members try very hard to select projects that would serve all segments of the population such as seniors, library, schools, and local artists/art projects.
