Scituate Cultural Council

The Scituate Cultural Council (SCC) is part of the Massachusetts Cultural Council’s (MCC) Local Cultural Council Program – the largest grassroots cultural funding network in the nation. Each year, the MCC distributes funds to the SCC, which grants these funds to local individuals, schools and organizations in support of arts, humanities, and interpretive science projects for the benefit of Scituate residents.

The SCC is comprised of volunteers appointed by the Scituate Select Board and is responsible for reviewing grant applications and awarding monies. The most-recent grant cycle (FY2023) awarded 22 grants, totaling $10,812, for projects benefiting the Scituate community featuring a wide range of cultural disciplines, including: Cultural Education and Exchanges ($5,262); Festivals ($1000); Interpretive Sciences ($1000); and Performing Arts ($2,750).

The SCC partnered with the Town of Scituate, the Scituate Harbor Business Association, and the Scituate Arts Association in spearheading a successful application process to obtain Cultural District designation for Scituate Harbor, and the SCC will continue to support the Scituate Harbor Cultural District.
