Russell Cultural Council

Cultivate and promote activities that support the needs and priorities of the diverse populations of our community by providing our residents with access to rich cultural experiences through community-based programs in the arts, humanities and sciences.

We serve and support:
� Our Town Library by helping to fund activities for youth and adults.
� Our local Senior Center by providing funding to enhance the cultural experiences of the town’s elders.
� Activities which strengthen the bond between our Fire and Police Departments with the citizens of our community
� Our town’s rich heritage by recognizing the role of its citizens and our community in political and historical events on both the State and National levels.

FY22 Allocation

$5,100

FY22 Local Priorities

Local councils are authorized to develop additional criteria and may give different weight to their criteria in order to reflect local concerns and community cultural needs. Any council priorities will be posted here by September 1.

FY22 Local Guidelines

In recent years, many recipients have failed to provide visibility for the Cultural Council by posting signs at events or including appropriate wording in press releases. The guidelines for acknowledging your funding publicly will be better monitored in the future, and failure to follow them could influence our future decisions.
