North Brookfield Cultural Council
The North Brookfield Cultural Council (NBCC) supports public programs that promote access, education, diversity and excellence in the arts, humanities, and interpretive sciences; directly affect the residents of North Brookfield; achieve the greatest community benefit; and cultivate the arts through participation and appreciation.

The North Brookfield Cultural Council seeks to cultivate a culture of equity and inclusion, including the promotion of diversity in the arts, through our programs, information, granting, and through the organizations we support. We are committed to supporting programming that promotes excellence, education, diversity and inclusion in the arts, humanities, and sciences to foster a rich cultural life in our community.

FY22 Local Priorities
The North Brookfield Cultural Council prioritizes those proposals that have the greatest impact on the community.
We prioritize proposals that serve specific audiences as well as those that work to bring together diverse groups.
School programs, senior programs, library programs and local organizations are priorities and should demonstrate the backing of the appropriate authorities.
In order to maximize the funds, the council may partially fund a proposal.
