The Seekonk Cultural Council Seeks Funding Proposals

Proposals for community-oriented arts, humanities, and science programs due October 17.


The Seekonk Cultural Council has set an October 17th deadline for organizations, schools, and individuals to apply for grants that support cultural activities in the community.

According to Council spokesperson Bill Clark, these grants can support a variety of artistic projects and activities in Seekonk -- including exhibits, festivals, field trips, short-term artist residencies, or performances in schools, workshops, and lectures.

The Seekonk 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 Mass Cultural Council, a state agency, which then allocates funds to each community.

This year, the Seekonk Cultural Council will distribute about $9200 in grants. Previously funded projects include:

  • Entertaining and Interactive programs for elementary schools
  • Support for drama presentations for our Middle School
  • Funding for educational and creative projects for our High School
  • Inspiring programs for children at our Public Library
  • Performances and thoughtful talks for adults at our Public Library
  • Music and classes at our Senior Center
