New Salem Cultural Council

The priority of the New Salem Cultural Council is to fund a variety of projects that serve many different age groups, including children, teens, adults and seniors; we also attempt to serve as many venues as possible, including the Library, various schools, the Council on Aging luncheons, Old Home Day, and Historic buildings.
Priority will be given to local applicants whose project pertains to, affects, and can be easily accessed by townspeople and will directly enhance the cultural strength of our community.

In addition to following the state criteria, we evaluate and give priority to applicants that have made prior arrangements for a local venue and have an approved budget in place. The Council tries to fully fund as many applications as possible. However, smaller grants are more likely to be approved. Where we make the decision to partially fund a project, we will give priority to those projects that will still be able to move forward with partial funding.

In light of the continued Covid-19 pandemic, we will also give preference to projects that can be doable/viewable online via Zoom, Facebook, YouTube etc. as well as other events/projects that lend themselves to social distancing.

Applicants will be responsible for their own publicity, as we have limited resources to handle this.
Positive reviews and letters of recommendation and the opportunity for attendees to evaluate the project will be considered favorably.

Based on community feedback and past experience with Cultural Council applications, the New Salem Cultural Council has developed the following set of guidelines. In addition to the state criteria, we will evaluate and give priority to:

* Programs which can be performed in such a way as to provide a “COVID- safe “environment for both the performer(s) and the attendees of any such programs including but not limited to, online venues, Zoom meetings, and socially distanced events.
* We try to fully fund as many applications as possible; where we make the decision to partially fund a project, we will give priority to those projects that will still be able to move forward with partial funding.
* We try to fund a variety of projects that serve many different age groups, including children, teens, adults and seniors; we will also attempt to serve as many venues as possible, including the Library, various schools, the Council on Aging luncheons, Old Home Day, and Historic buildings
* All else being equal, priority will be given to local applicants whose project pertains to, affects, and can be easily accessed by townspeople and will directly enhance the cultural strength of our community
* Positive reviews and letters of recommendation will be considered favorably
