FY23 Local Priorities
Local Cultural Councils grant monies provided by the Massachusetts Cultural Council to fund art, science and humanities projects, performances, and activities.
The Buckland Cultural Council gives priority to projects that:
– Have venues in the area or a local connection
– Focus on local history
– Are culturally diverse, historically inclusive, and bring focus to underrepresented groups
– Educate the community in the arts, humanities, and/or natural sciences
– Reach a wide age range of participants/audiences including youth, school groups, and/or seniors
– Reach a large number of residents and are relatively inexpensive to attend
– Include collaborations among arts organizations, schools, libraries, and humanitarian organizations
– We believe will be of interest to the residents
If you have a culturally enriching idea, you are encouraged to apply!
FY23 Local Guidelines
Applications must be submitted electronically by the application deadline to be considered. The Buckland Cultural Council will meet soon thereafter to review applications and respond in a timely manner. Accepted applicants are asked to submit press for activities/events to the council in advance so that we can promote your programs through our Buckland Cultural Council Facebook page.
