Collaborative Cultural Grants in Franklin

The Franklin Cultural District Committee (FCDC) was honored to receive a $5,000 grant from the Massachusetts Cultural Council (MCC). Franklin Cultural District (FCD) Partners were invited to submit their ideas for use of the MCC funds that would support and enhance collaborative events highlighting culture and the arts. The result of this call for proposals was well met with several Partners sharing ideas for collaborative events.

Importantly, the FCDC would like to thank all who attended the FCDC meeting and shared their ideas. It was an inspiring meeting that resulted in events proposed that are collaborative, invoke culture and the arts, and are reflective of Franklin’s community spirit

The FCDC is pleased to announce that the following Partners have been awarded grant funding for projects and events, which will help to enhance culture and the arts in the Town of Franklin.
