Charlemont-Hawley Cultural Council

The Charlemont-Hawley Arts Council supports civic conversation, theater, art, music, and much more in our small hill towns. Our board is made up of members from both Charlemont and Hawley. We love having the opportunity to learn about and support local goings on.

Our local priorities include education and intergenerational activities. We give priority to individuals and activities located in our two-town area.
