Hopkinton Cultural Council

The purpose of the Hopkinton Cultural Council (HCC) is to support public programs in the arts, humanities and interpretive sciences which promote access, education, diversity and excellence for residents of our community. This is accomplished by granting funds received from the Massachusetts Cultural Council (MCC), in accordance with their guidelines, to individuals and organizations that will present their programs in our community or local area. We fund a variety of programs each year appropriate for diverse age and interest groups. Whenever possible we give priority to Hopkinton artists and organizations. The HCC actively seeks opportunities to increase visibility to groups of different cultures to promote diverse grant opportunities.
