Somerville Arts Council
The mission of the Somerville Arts Council (SAC) is to cultivate and celebrate the creative expressions of the Somerville community. Through innovative collaborations and quality programming we work to make the arts an integral part of life reflective of our diverse city.

FY22 Local Priorities
Our priorities remain the same as prior years. However, due to the City’s recent support to Organizations and Individuals for Covid related losses, we will discontinue our Infrastructure category. We remain committed to support fellowships in all discipline categories and retain our Cultural Infrastructure and Cultural Heritage categories.
You must download our 2022 LCC guidelines PDF on our website for specific directions, found here: http://somervilleartscouncil.org/grants/grantforms
We will no longer accept paper applications. All applicants must use the MCC/LCC online application found on the “Apply Now” tab.
While applicants can now submit up to 3 pdfs in support material via the MCC online portal, applicants who will be submitting JPEGs or MP3s (i.e. visual artists and perhaps musicians) will continue to submit through our Council’s Google Drive account. Support materials remain a primary means in which our panelist will review your work.
