According to Council President Rachel Kagno, these grants can support a variety of artistic projects and activities in and around Holliston -- including exhibits, festivals, field trips, short-term artist residencies or performances in schools, musical performances, workshops and lectures.  Over the years, the Council has supported a variety of organizations and programs such as: the Placentino and Miller School’s Culture Connection, Holliston Early Childhood Council, Holliston Senior Center, Holliston Public Library, among others. This year, approximately $4,300 will be distributed locally.

The Holliston Arts 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 Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency, which then allocates funds to each community.
