North Andover Cultural Council

The North Andover Cultural Council needs your help! We need the people who live and work in town to help advise us about how best to allocate public dollars for programs and activities in the arts, humanities and interpretive sciences. You can help by applying for grants, sharing information about the grants and reaching out to ask if you might be a good fit to serve on the North Andover Cultural Council.

We are appointed by the North Andover Select Board to dispense public funding allocated by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
