Cultural Council


Our goal is to fund diverse cultural programs for a variety of audiences/ participants.

The Westminster Cultural Council is one of 329 Local Cultural Councils (LCCs) in Massachusetts. Local Cultural Council Program Guidelines describe the LCC program as follows:

  • In Massachusetts, public funding for the arts, humanities, and interpretive sciences is provided through a central state agency, the Massachusetts Cultural Council (MCC), and through a network of local cultural councils that serve every city and town in the state.
  • “The MCC receives funding from the Massachusetts Legislature and the National Endowment for the Arts.
  • “Local Cultural Councils (LCCs) are made up of volunteers who are appointed by the community’s chief elected official and who are responsible for making decisions on how they will award the money granted to them by the MCC in ways that will serve local cultural needs.”
