Bernardston Cultural Council

The Bernardston Cultural Council will consider all applications. Forms must be submitted online through www.mass-culture.org by the deadline of Oct. 17th.

To be considered we require the following;
A definite venue. The venue must be confirmed prior to submitting the grant request.

The date of the event or program must be confirmed and submitted with your online application.

If you are awarded a grant (partial or full), you are fully responsible for the creation and distribution of all marketing and publicity materials. All programs must be advertised properly.

We encourage all artists or persons to apply. It is important to be able to offer diverse programming in our town. We might not always be able to fully fund each application, but we try to consider as many as possible.

Due to the high amount of applications we receive each year, and to the limited funds we are able to provide, an applicant’s chances of receiving funding are increased when the grant amount requested is below $500.

The Massachusetts Cultural Council is excited to announce that the Local Cultural Council Program online application is now available. All applications will need to be submitted online at https://massculturalcouncil.smartsimple.com/.

Please read local and State Guidelines carefully. Massachusetts cultural funds are not to be used to replace existing public funds for programs in the arts and humanities.

We receive a large amount of grant requests and can only consider complete applications. We truly appreciate your cooperation.

Sincerely,
The Bernardston Cultural Council.
