Shelburne Cultural Council

The mission of the Shelburne Local Cultural Council is to help fund a broad range of cultural events that support and enrich the community life of Shelburne Falls and the immediate area. We encourage local cultural educators and artists to develop and share their talents through programs and events that appeal to the diverse interests of residents of all ages.

FY22 Allocation


FY22 Local Priorities

The Shelburne Cultural Council is committed to fostering awareness of the value of racial, ethnic and cultural diversity in our community life through funding projects in the arts, humanities, and interpretive sciences. Given the constraints posed by the ongoing Covid pandemic on public gatherings, the Council encourages 2022 applicants to submit projects that meet pandemic-related public safety guidelines, such as: the event or project can be presented via safe outdoor or compliant indoor venues; are designed for ongoing public displays; or make use of virtual platforms.

We welcome innovative concepts and encourage collaborative projects that directly benefit our community and age groups.

Each grant application must explicitly define its local audience and any collaborative partners. It must provide a detailed budget and present a sound publicity strategy, in particular to residents of Shelburne. We especially want to know how a virtual presentation will be publicized to Shelburne residents.

FY22 Local Guidelines

All Shelburne Cultural Council-funded applications must meet the current MCC requirements. This year, all applications to the SCC for the 2022 grant cycle must be completed online. Before starting your online application, please take the time to read Mass Cultural Council’s overview and guidelines:

SCC’s grants are reimbursement-based. Upon request, SCC will issue reimbursement for a partial amount to help with documented start-up expenses. Final reimbursement will be made upon completion of the grant’s final report.

All applications must include a statement of support from hosting organization and/or venue, as well as any collaborative partner.

In light of Covid’s continuing impact on indoor venues, a back-up plan (virtual or outdoor) should be included.

Include link to the applicant’s website.

Applicants should not expect the SCC to fully fund projects. Each application should indicate a detailed budget identifying funding streams, including applications to other local cultural councils, which will also help to reach more local audiences.

Submit application-related questions to well before the deadline of October 15. We will promptly respond.
