The Nantucket Cultural Council, part of the nation’s largest grassroots cultural funding network, is accepting proposals from organizations, schools, and individuals to apply for grants that support cultural activities in the community. According to Council spokesperson Jordana Fleischut, these grants can support a variety of artistic projects and activities on Nantucket, including exhibits, festivals, short-term artist residencies, performances in schools, workshops, and lectures. The Nantucket Cultural Council will also entertain funding proposals from schools and youth groups through the PASS Program, which provides subsidies for school-age children to attend cultural field trips.
This year, the Nantucket Cultural Council will distribute $3,870 in grants. Previously funded projects include support for the Nantucket Arts Council, The Nantucket Dreamland Foundation, Nantucket Community Music Center, Nantucket Arts Council, The Artists Assoc., The Salt Marsh Center, N.I.S.D.A., Friends of Nantucket Public Schools, and The Woman’s Chorus of Nantucket.
