Lunenburg Cultural Council

The mission of the Lunenburg Cultural Council is to nurture and promote a diverse range of artistic and cultural programs for the benefit of Lunenburg and surrounding communities. These will include: cultural, visual, and performing arts, as well as educational programs that support science and nature. We accomplish this through annual allocation of state grants for local projects and by producing cultural events using locally-raised funds. We are committed to nurturing our artistic community through supporting events that are diverse, accessible, collaborative, and fun for Lunenburg residents and visitors of all ages.
