Gill Cultural Council

The Gill Cultural Council serves to create ample opportunities for cultural and artistic expression and experience for all residents. In this time of the pandemic, we encourage applications for both online and live events, with the understanding that up to date requirements for social distancing will be met. We hope to infuse the calendar with happenings and events that promote cultural literacy throughout the community. We work with the MCC to bring performers, artists, historians, naturalists, speakers, musicians, and workshop presenters to venues in town or nearby towns. Some of the organizations we have given money to in recent years include the Slate Memorial Library, the Gill Elementary School, the Gill/Montague Council on Aging, the Gill HIstorical Commission, the Shea Theater and the Antenna Cloud Farm concert series. We will assist in the promotion of events upon request..

FY22 Allocation


FY22 Local Priorities

Based on feedback from our most recent community survey, the Gill Cultural Council will give priority as described below. In this time of Covid, we do recognize that some of the events may be virtual:
-Projects and events that take place in Gill or one of the adjoining towns
– Community-wide gatherings, such as concerts, that bring together people of all ages
– Projects that benefit the town’s elementary school children
– A balance of fine art, theater, dance, music, history and writing projects
– Nature, science and environmental education programs

We will evaluate proposals based on how well they meet our local priorities as well as on the applicant’s background, track record, and demonstrated planning. We give priority to projects generated by Gill residents, or which display a partnership with an organization or venue in Gill or adjoining town. We also give priority to applicants who seek diverse sources of funding and who clearly explain how the project will proceed without full funding.

FY22 Local Guidelines

Please go online to print out an application form, fill out all necessary fields and provide all necessary accompaniments, and send to us by October 15. Applications must be postmarked by the 15th in order to be considered; they may also be dropped off during regular Town Hall hours (see town web site)
