The Local Cultural Council Program (LCC) is a grassroots complement to the Massachusetts Cultural Council’s centralized grant program. Allocations are made to all of Massachusetts' 351 cities and towns to support community cultural activities. LCC Program is the most extensive system of its kind in the nation to support the arts. LCC volunteers review applications from individuals, schools, and organizations to fund concerts, performances, lectures, workshops and community celebrations. LCCs also accept and review applications for a ticket subsidy program, called the Field Trip Program, to fund field trips for groups and after school programs.
Mansfield Local Cultural Council is comprised of area volunteers with an interest in supporting the arts, humanities and interpretive sciences in the Town of Mansfield. Our mission is to promote excellence, access, education and diversity in these areas.
