Peabody Cultural Council

The Mission of the Peabody Cultural Council is to support and promote the arts in the City of Peabody. The Peabody Cultural Council is proud to support public programs that create opportunities for people of all ages and backgrounds to explore any of the various branches of the arts, including the visual arts (drawing, painting, photography, printmaking, film making), plastic arts (sculpture, ceramics, metalworking, glass working, mosaic & architecture), performing arts (Music, Theater, Dance), and Literary arts (Poetry, and prose). It is the goal of the PCC to mobilize resources and to ensure that artistic cultural opportunities are available and accessible to all segments of Peabody’s population in order to improve the quality of life for everyone.

FY22 Local Priorities

Applicants for cultural council projects must submit applications electronically through the Mass Cultural Council website.
Applications without a firm date or location will not be considered.

Applications must be submitted by the required deadline.

Guidelines for Schools

The council may award just one grant for each school in the City of Peabody for field trips and/or one for cultural performances in house. Two grants may be granted in one of the categories if schools are splitting a performer’s fees.

If using a LCC Application for a cultural field trip (cost of ticket is over $12.00) please attach a short statement listing the number of students planning on attending and the price/ticket.

Funding for field trips is to be used to supplement ticket prices for students attending a cultural field trip only. The Peabody LCC does not pay for chaperones, teachers, transportation or refreshments.

Eligibility for Grant

All projects that are funded will benefit the residents of Peabody and enrich the cultural well being of the community.

The project should be accessible and available to the general public.

The funds should encourage projects which have demonstrated community support.

The funds should add to existing programs and not be used to replace existing funding.

The projects should not depend solely on Cultural Council funding for an extended period of time.

Organizations and individuals may receive no more than two Cultural Council grants per year. When a meritorious grant request exceeds the funds available, the Council may give awards to those applicants who have received fewer grants in the past.
Individuals wishing monies for a scholarship without any return to the community are not eligible.

Program quality will be a major consideration in all decision making.

Organizations that are comprised of Peabody residents or are Peabody sponsored will be given priority over outside organizations.

Applicants may not use Cultural Council funds for refreshments or for transportation to an event.

Grants may not be transferred to another field trip/cultural event. Failure to use the grant funds for the requested field trip/cultural event as listed on your application will result in forfeiture of those funds and may result in the loss of future funding.
