What We Do
The Marblehead Cultural Council is one of 351 local organizations that are funded directly from the Massachusetts Cultural Council. We use our allocation to support community cultural activities. Board members, who are appointed by the Board of Selectmen, review applications, and award grants. We also accept and review applications from schools and youth groups for a ticket subsidy program. See more Grant Information.

When We Meet
The Cultural Council meets at the Marblehead Community Center, Humphrey Street. Four meetings are scheduled August through November. Generally two additional meetings are scheduled between December and July.

Volunteer Opportunities
The Cultural Council is a very "hands-on" board and is always looking for people who are interested in and enthusiastic about expanding the availability of the arts in Marblehead.

State Links
The Massachusetts Cultural Council (MCC), of which the Marblehead Cultural Council is part, has an extensive website.  Each year, local councils award more than $2 million in grants to more than 5,000 cultural programs statewide.  Grants were directly awarded to non-profit cultural organizations, schools, communities and individual artists through funding programs that use arts, science and the humanities to build strong, diverse and livable communities. The beneficiaries of these programs comprise a cross-section of the population and citizens in each Massachusetts city and town.
