Falmouth Cultural Council

The Falmouth Cultural Council supports community-based projects in the arts, humanities, and interpretive sciences with funds appropriated by the state legislature and administered by the Massachusetts Cultural Council. The Falmouth Cultural Council supplements those funds with monies raised by the Falmouth ArtMarket.

The Falmouth Cultural Council has awarded $20,000 in grants to 28 individuals and organizations for FY2023 local arts and culture programs and projects.

The Falmouth Cultural Council received $8,400 from the Mass Cultural Council, an additional $10,000 from the Town of Falmouth, and supplemented those funds with $1,600 raised from the annual summer Falmouth ArtMarket.
