Mission Statement

The Merrimac Cultural Council supports community-based Arts, Humanities, and Interpretive Science events with funding allocated to us by the Massachusetts Cultural Council. We favor local applicants with established venues or sponsors. We hope to fund arts-related projects whenever feasible, and encourage new applicants or projects of particular interest to our local community. When reviewing applicants we also consider local needs, community involvement, and diversity.

Please note that all applications are now required to be submitted online. The 2018 deadline is October 15, 2018. If you are in need of assistance with the online application please contact the council before 10/1/18.
