Marblehead Cultural Council

What We Do

The Marblehead Cultural Council is one of 351 local organizations that are funded directly from the Massachusetts Cultural Council to support community cultural, artistic, scientific and historical activities. Board members are appointed by the Board of Selectmen.

We encourage local residents to submit applications which we review each fall and award grants.

Our website can be found at

The Cultural Council schedules meetings throughout the year based on need, roughly every other month.
Further information may also be found on the Town of Marblehead web site or at or by contacting the Chair.
