Have a cultural program in mind for Wayland, but need funds to make it happen? Listen up:
The Wayland Cultural Council (WCC) is now accepting grant applications for the 2012 grant cycle. Before you assume that your project can't possibly earn grant support, check out some of the projects the WCC funded in Fiscal Year 2012:
JoAnn Kiburz received funds for a "Family Science Night: Chemistry, Energy, Physics"; Janet Armentano received funds for a digital camera purchase; and the Wayland Council on Aging received funds for "An Afternoon of Irish Entertainment with Glenshane."
Past WCC grants assisted programs focused on ballet, music, local history, natural history, visual arts, science and literature.
According to a press release from the WCC, Wayland receives its funding from the Massachusetts Cultural Council (MCC), and the grant money is intended to fund "public programs that promote access, education, diversity, and excellence in the arts, humanities, and interpretive sciences."
