FY22 Local Priorities

The purpose of the Rowley Cultural Council is to promote and maintain the vitality of local cultural resources and to ensure these resources are shared within the community. The Council is committed to funding a diverse cross-section of activities. We support a broad variety of art forms, the ongoing work of individual artists, environmental education projects, collaborative proposals that bring together artists and other types of organizations, local cultural groups and projects that serve specific populations — youth, elders, low-income, disabled.

Submission Guidelines:

  • Applicants must complete an online application.

Funding Priorities:

Information from our public input meetings and community input surveys have helped us determine what type of programs to fund. We are looking for proposals that have a local public benefit with preference given to activities that support greater Rowley artists, artisans, or organizations. These activities include, but are not limited to:

  • Library museum passes and summer programs
  • Youth arts after school
  • Town events for the community
  • Cultural arts in the schools

Priority is given to programs with a confirmed venue. The application should include a confirmation of the date and venue with a letter from the venue host including contact information.

Applications are evaluated in terms of several review criteria: artistic or creative merit; project design; qualifications, dedication and track record of the individuals and organizations involved; physical accessibility of any facilities being used; and community benefit/involvement. The council will carefully scrutinize repeated requests; such proposals should show other sources of support to show the project is not dependent solely on council funding.

Enrichment projects utilizing outside professionals are allowed. Rowley based applicants are given preference over those from out of town.
