Cultural Council

Blackstone Cultural Council 2011-2012

The purpose of the Blackstone Cultural Council is to support local public programs that promote access, education, diversity and excellence in the arts, humanities and interpretive sciences in Blackstone. Preference will be given to Blackstone performances, events, artists and organizations based in Blackstone.

The BCC awards grants with applications due on October 15 annually. Succcessful proposals will demonstrate a clear benefit to Blackstone residents for programs or projects that take place in and/or are specifically related to the culture and history of Blackstone.  

Eligible applicants include organizations that plan public events, artists or performers, schools (for field trips to cultural events or to bring in performers) via the PASS Program, and religious organizations, as long as program is mainly cultural in nature.
