Brewster Cultural Council
The Brewster Cultural Council serves as a catalyst for artistic expression in Town. It provides resources, makes connections, spearheads programs, and directs funding to individuals and organizations that have—or have the potential to have–the most impact in the cultural life of Brewster. The BCC is leading a movement to bring people of all backgrounds in the arts, humanities and sciences together for a common cause: to elevate the importance of cultural to create a better Brewster.
Meetings for the Council take place on Monday evenings in the conference room at the Brewster Town Hall. Agendas for all meetings are posted at the Brewster Town Hall. Meetings are open to all Brewster residents, currently public participation is via zoom.
