Cultural Council


The mission of the FCC, a local partner of the Massachusetts Cultural Council, is to promote excellence, access, education and diversity in the arts, humanities, and interpretive sciences thereby improving the quality of life for all Framingham residents and contributing to the economic vitality of our community.

The council is responsible for ensuring that MCC and other local Framingham funds are distributed broadly to Framingham's creative community through grants, awards, scholarships and other forms of public awareness and recognition, and reflect the city’s cultural diversity.
