The Waltham Cultural Council encourages LCC and Field Trip grant applications for 2012/2013. Artists, groups and institutions are encouraged to apply for funding of activities in the arts, humanities, or interpretive sciences that will enrich the Waltham community. Last year the Council gave out over 30 awards, all under $1000, to reimburse expenses for individual events. Applications, local guidelines, and tips for completing the form are available on the Massachusetts Cultural Council’s web site: http://www.mass-culture.org/waltham. For additional information, please contact the Waltham Cultural Council: WCulturalCouncil@yahoo.com. Applications must be mailed to the Waltham Cultural Council, P. O. Box 540435, Waltham, MA 02454 and be postmarked by Oct. 15, 2012.
