Marion Cultural Council is excited to receive online grant applications for individuals and organizations for art and STEM-related projects that will help to enrich the Marion community beginning October 1, 2020. Marion Cultural Council has set a November 15 deadline for organizations, schools, and individuals to apply for grants that support cultural activities and proposals for community-oriented arts, humanities, and science programs in the community. These grants can support a variety of artistic projects and activities in Marion, including exhibits, festivals, field trips, short-term artist residencies, or performances in schools, workshops, and lectures. This year we ask applicants to consider a possible virtual or “backup” option/and or dates for their events if possible. The inability to do this will not hinder your consideration however maybe helpful for your project.
The Marion Cultural Council is part of a network of 329 Local Cultural Councils serving all 351 cities and towns in the Commonwealth. The LCC Program is the largest grassroots cultural funding network in the nation, supporting thousands of community-based projects in the arts, sciences, and humanities every year. The state legislature provides an annual appropriation to the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency, which then allocates funds to each community.
