Taunton Cultural Council

The Taunton Cultural Council comprises a group of local volunteers, who are appointed by the Mayor, and who help promote and facilitate activities and the arts in Taunton. The Council oversees the distribution of Massachusetts Cultural Council funds to support programs in the arts, humanities, and sciences. We have funded programs that served teachers and students, seniors, artists, community events, and annual events that cover a wide, cross-section of Taunton.

Locally-raised funding may be used to support cultural programs. The Taunton Cultural Council can also organize, promote, and support single and ongoing cultural events and activities; such special programs are currently being considered. Our goal is to constantly identify and reach out to any underserved community.
