Who We Are and What We Do
The Lakeville Arts Council, as part of the Massachusetts Cultural Council, promotes excellence, access, education and diversity in the arts, humanities and interpretive sciences, in order to improve the quality of life for our community and its residents and to contribute to the economic vitality of our town. (To check out more information about the MCC visit www.mass-culture.org.)
A few of the projects funded by the Lakeville Arts Council thru the MCC grants include:
Theatre One Productions, Cultural Presentation Series held annually at the Lakeville Public Library since 2007, Lakeville Council on Aging, Soule Farm Educational Center, Lakeville Public Library, Massachusetts Audubon, and the Lakeville Historical Society among others. Grants funding is also considered for individual Artist based projects. For a list of the 2016 Grants, please click here.
For more than 30 years, the MCC has invested in the cultural life of Massachusetts. The LAC receives an annual appropriation from the state legislature. It then makes approves grants to nonprofit cultural organizations, schools, communities and individual artists, funding programs that use the arts and the humanities to build strong, diverse, livable communities.
In addition to the distribution of MCC grants, the current Lakeville Arts Council is active in the community; annual Lakeville Arts and Music Festival, and "Made In Lakeville" Holiday Craft and Gift Sale and FREE summer Concerts are just a few examples of Council originated ideas.
