Additional State Funding Available to Artists

The Holliston Cultural Council distributes grant money provided by the State to local artists and other providers of culture. The Council has learned that another source of State funding for local artists will soon become available.

The Mass Cultural Council will launch two Cultural Sector Pandemic Recovery grant programs in August, with opportunities for both individuals and cultural organizations.
