About the Ashland Cultural Council

The mission of the Ashland Cultural Council is to promote excellence, access, education and diversity in the arts, humanities and interpretive sciences, in order to improve the quality of life for all Ashland residents and to contribute to the economic vitality of our community. The Ashland Cultural Council distributes MCC grants funds to arts, humanities, and interpretive science projects in our town.

Our cultural projects take place in schools, community centers, libraries, elder care facilities, town halls, parks, and wherever communities come together.

We give preference to Ashland residents and programs in town. Please contact possible venues and tentatively schedule your event before submitting your application.

Ashland Cultural Council is administered by appointed volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering for our council please follow instructions in our contact us page.
