Weymouth Cultural Council

Thank you your interest in the Weymouth Cultural Council.

Our mission is to support cultural events for the citizens of Weymouth and surrounding communities on the South Shore.
Grant applications will be accepted from SEPTEMBER 1st -OCTOBER 15th. Applications must be submitted online, paper will not be accepted. Late applications cannot be accepted.

The Weymouth Cultural Council (WCC) is a volunteer group of Weymouth residents whose purpose is to support local public programs that promote access, education, diversity and excellence in the arts and humanities to benefit the residents of Weymouth.
The WCC has an important role in ensuring that cultural opportunities are made accessible to all segments of the community, including children, teens, elders and the disabled. Preference will be given to performances and events located at Weymouth community venues, and established artists and organizations based in Weymouth or supporting the residents of Weymouth.

Programs we will fund include, but are not limited to:
– Community wide gatherings: festivals, concerts, plays, other cultural activities
– School cultural enrichment programs
– Nature, environmental education projects
– Projects celebrating local history, cultural diversity
– Restoration or preservation projects (not related to capital expenditures)
– Neighborhood revitalization
– Local artists’ live and work spaces, and professional development

Massachusetts-based individuals, artists, nonprofit community groups, cultural institutions and schools may apply.
In addition to the state criteria (public benefit, non-discrimination, no substitution, arts/humanities/interpretive sciences), applications will be evaluated using the following review criteria:

– How well the program meets our local priorities
– Community support and involvement
– Evidence of track record and dedication of the applicant
– Ability to address the diverse cultural needs of a community’s underserved populations or support diverse forms of cultural activities
– Financial need
– Demonstrated planning, including venue, artist, and date(s) of program.

We do not fund field trips or associated expenses. To receive consideration, all applications must have a date, venue, and artist listed on the application.
