ATHOL — The Athol Cultural Council has set an Oct. 15 deadline for organizations, schools and individuals to apply for grants that support cultural activities in the community.

According to Council spokesperson Robin Brzozowski, these grants can support a variety of artistic projects and activities in Athol — including exhibits, concerts, festivals, field trips, short-term artist residencies, or performances in schools, workshops and lectures.

The Athol Cultural Council is part of a network of 329 Local Cultural Councils serving all 351 cities and towns in the Commonwealth. The LCC Program is the largest grassroots cultural funding network in the nation, supporting thousands of community-based projects in the arts, sciences and humanities every year. The state legislature provides an annual appropriation to the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency, which then allocates funds to each community.

This year, the Athol Cultural Council will distribute about $13,500 in grants. Some previously funded projects include: Tool Town Live, Uniquely Quabbin Magazine, Animal World Experience, Theater at the Mount, Boston Museum of Fine Arts museum passes, and Vital.Vibrant.Visible: Local Indigenous Identity Through Portraiture.
