Ayer Cultural Council seeks funding proposals, has immediate need for 2 members


The Ayer Cultural Council (ACC) has set an Oct. 16 postmark deadline for organizations, schools and individuals to apply for grants that support cultural activities in the community: arts, humanities, and science programs. To apply online and view the ACC guidelines, go to http://www.mass-culture.org/Ayer

Priority will be given to community wide events such as concerts & festivals; programs that serve families, youth, seniors and low-income population segments; local artists and cultural organizations; arts education in the schools & youth arts programs outside of school; and programs that support nature and science. Specific guidelines and criteria can be found online at https://www.mass-culture.org/Ayer.

Volunteers Needed: If you are an Ayer resident, with a passion for the arts, please consider joining the ACC. If we drop below our current minimum membership requirements, the state will take control of our council and determine which grants are awarded funds. To be a part of this year’s grant decision-making process, contact chair Sheila Schwabe at 610-316-0919 or sschwabe@ayer.ma.us.
