Community arts grants applications available

Dear fellow Hanoverians:

Apply now for community arts grants through the Hanover Cultural Council!

Proposals for community-oriented arts, humanities, and science programs are
due October 15th.

Have you ever wondered what happens with the funds raised at Hanover Day?
Money from our annual celebration, plus Hanover’s share of state cultural
funds, is used to support arts, science, and humanities projects throughout
the year.

The Hanover Cultural Council has set an October 15, 2019 deadline for
organizations, schools, and individuals to apply for grants to fund
cultural activities in Hanover. These grants can support a variety of arts,
science, and humanities projects, including exhibits, festivals, field
trips, short-term artist residencies or performances in schools, workshops,
and lectures.

Past events have included the Summer Concert Series by the Parks and
Recreation Department, the Drama Club Dinner Theater programs at South
Shore Vo-Tech, funding for the Hanover Performing Arts Company, Pastel
Painting Workshops, the Annual Hanover Day Art Exhibit, Museum of Science
Outreach program at Cedar Elementary School, several museum passes and
children’s programs at the John Curtis Library, and sponsorships of
programs for the Walnut Hill Garden Club, South Shore Natural Science
Center, Hanover senior center, and many others.
This year’s allocation to Hanover from the Massachusetts Cultural Council
is $6,200, and additional funds are available thanks to the past success of
Hanover Day. The Council will meet later this fall to review the
applications and award the grants.

The Hanover Cultural Council is part of a network of 329 Local Cultural
Councils serving all 351 cities and towns in the Commonwealth. The state
legislature provides an annual appropriation to the Massachusetts Cultural
Council, a state agency, which then allocates funds to each community.
Local councils are allowed to raise additional money through events like
Hanover Day.

Applications and more information about the program are available online at
For more information, see the attached flyer or contact Chris Haraden,
