Cultural Council


The purpose of the Nantucket Cultural Council is to promote and maintain the vitality of local cultural resources and to ensure these resources are shared within the Nantucket community. The council is committed to funding a diverse cross-section of activities. We support a broad variety of art forms, the ongoing work of individual artists, environmental education projects, collaborative proposals that bring together artists and other types of organizations, local cultural groups and projects that serve specific populations, including, but not limited to: youth, elders, low-income, disabled. Granting funds to individual artists, cultural organizations, schools, and other community groups fund exhibitions, performances, lectures, artist residencies in the schools, and more. Many of these projects bring an arts discipline to a new audience, complement the education of our young people, or connect artists' work to everyday life. They promote the uniqueness of a community, foster community pride, bring people together, and provide a sense of celebration for the community. Our mission is that, The Local Cultural Council of Nantucket grants connect people and places in creative, dynamic, and exciting ways, that help strengthen the social fiber of our community, and improve the quality of life.
