Due to the ongoing pandemic, many of the programs funded by the Cultural Council for 2020 did not take place. Our committee is working with grantees to modify or postpone the approved programs in order to ensure that those culturally enriching events can happen. If you are such a grantee and need information, please do not hesitate to contact our committee.
In spite of the difficulties of presenting programs at this time, we believe that there are creative individuals in our community who have new and exciting ideas about how to offer enrichment and growth to Otis residents in keeping with the Covid-19 safety guidelines as recommended by the Commonwealth.
And in spite of the difficulties, we believe that there are opportunities to bring the joy of creative endeavor, the pleasure of art and music, to address the challenges we all face, and to celebrate our community.
Therefore, we invite artists, artisans, educators, lecturers, and performers living in Massachusetts to apply for state and town funding for cultural programs to benefit Otis residents in 2021. Programs must fit the guidelines of our Mission Statement below. We will accept paper applications mailed to the Cultural Council address above.
