Agawam Cultural Council
The Agawam Cultural Council is an all-volunteer local partner of the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency, and is funded, in part, by the MCC.
The ACC is charged with advancing the Arts in our community by dispersing state-provided monies via a grant application process. In addition, utilizing funds from our own fundraising efforts — including freewill audience donations — we have made it our mission to present a range of engaging, entertaining, and educational events open to audiences of all ages
from Agawam and the surrounding communities.
