Montague Cultural Council seeks proposals

Deadline for submissions set for Oct. 15

TURNERS FALLS — The Montague Cultural Council has set an Oct. 15 postmark deadline for organizations, schools and individuals to apply for grants to support cultural activities in the community.

Grants can support a variety of artistic projects and activities in any of Montague’s five villages (Lake Pleasant, Montague City, Millers Falls, Montague Center, and Turners Falls), including exhibits, festivals, field trips, short-term artist residencies or performances in schools, workshops and lectures.

The state Legislature provides an annual appropriation to the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency, which then allocates funds to each community.

This year, the Montague Cultural Council will distribute about $4,250 in grants for 2014 programs.

For specific guidelines and complete information on the Montague Cultural Council, including membership opportunities, contact chairman George-Moonlight Davis at 413-422-1010 or gmoon1010@gmail.com. Application forms and more information about the Local Cultural Council Program are available online at www.mass-culture.org.

Application forms on paper are also available at the Carnegie Library, the Montague Center Library, the Millers Falls Library and the Montague Town Hall, 1 Avenue A.
