Stoneham Cultural Council

The mission of the Stoneham Cultural Council, as a member of the Mass Cultural Council, is to promote excellence, education, diversity, and inclusion in the arts, humanities, and sciences to foster a rich cultural life for all Stoneham residents and contribute to the vitality of our community and economy.

The Stoneham Cultural Council receives funding from the Mass Cultural Council which receives funding from the Massachusetts Legislature and the National Endowment for
the Arts, and it distributes these public funds through two channels:

1) Direct grants to individuals and organizations, available through statewide competitive grant processes;
and
2) Distributions to Local Cultural Councils, which then regrant funds to individuals and organizations in their own communities.

The Local Cultural Council (LCC) is comprised of the Stoneham Cultural Council along with the local councils of all other participating communities. The LCC Program was established in 1982 and was overseen by the Massachusetts Arts Lottery Council until 1990. It then merged with the Massachusetts Council on Arts and Humanities to form the Mass Cultural Council.

LCCs members are appointed by the community’s chief appointing authority. They are responsible for making decisions on how to award the money granted to them by the Mass Cultural Council plus funds raised in other ways that will best serve local cultural needs. There are currently over 300 LCCs in Massachusetts that form the most
extensive system of public support for community cultural programs in the country. Collectively, these councils fund thousands of cultural activities in all 351 cities and towns in the state.
