Ashburnham Cultural Council

The Ashburnham Cultural Council (ACC) is a volunteer committee of Ashburnham residents educated and experienced in the Arts. Every Massachusetts town has a Local Cultural Council (LCC) whose key responsibility is to promote the ARTS, HUMANITIES, and INTERPRETIVE SCIENCES through grant money provided by the Massachusetts Cultural Council (MCC). This funding makes it possible for towns to offer a variety of public programs, activities, and events. ACC members work hard to research, evaluate, and support projects that offer Ashburnham and the surrounding communities diverse cultural and educational experiences. LCC grants help improve the quality of life for all residents and contribute to the economic vitality of our communities.
