Avon Cultural Council

The goal of the Avon Cultural is to promote meaningful and entertaining in-town programs in support of the arts, humanities and interpretive sciences – open for all to attend. The Avon School field trips and the summer gazebo concerts are examples of applications we have supported as well as the Avon Library activities and the Senior Center programs. Priority given to local venues and programs geared toward senior citizens, teens and the growing multi-cultural population.

FY23 Local Priorities

This year the Avon Cultural Council will give priority to:

The Avon Cultural Council will only be considering Avon-in town programs including local organizations for funding.

All applicants must apply via the LCC Online Application, and the Avon Cultural Council will not be accepting paper applications.

The Avon Cultural Council will continue to encourage interest in ideas for local cultural events available for young adults, seniors and families alike.

Applicants that have secured a local venue.

Projects that serve youth/teens, the elderly, or diverse cultural needs of a Avon.

FY23 Local Guidelines

The Avon Cultural Council is dedicated to funding the Avon Schools and Avon organizations in their attempt to provide the community with activities supporting the arts, humanities and interpretive sciences. We encourage out of town artists to contact local venues of interest to advertise their programs rather than submit an unconfirmed incomplete application to the Council. The Avon Cultural Council will review all applications received and will gladly respond to any applicants requesting assistance. Student Field Trip information see above.
