FY25 Local Priorities

We prioritize events that will benefit the cultural life of Holliston and to a lesser extent that of our surrounding towns. We welcome applications for concerts, performances, festivals, workshops, art shows, and school assembly presentations from individuals and groups.

FY25 Local Guidelines

We partially fund projects if our budget does not allow us to fund fully all the projects we say yes to. Payment is on a reimbursement basis. Contact the chairperson at if you have questions.
