PR: Fitchburg Cultural Council – Community Input Meeting


The Fitchburg Cultural Council invites all members of the Fitchburg area community to join them for a virtual Community Input Meeting and Grantee Reception on Friday, September 25, 2020 from 6pm – 7pm.

The Fitchburg Cultural Council needs your input! Last year the Fitchburg Cultural Council (FCC) granted more than $40,000 to projects in and around Fitchburg. The FCC requests past FCC grantees, as well as the people who live and work in Fitchburg, to advise on how best to allocate public dollars for this coming season.

Feedback is requested on: 1.) What current programs and activities – in the arts, humanities and interpretive sciences are important to support or maintain and 2.) how have you, your organization, your children and/or the community been affected by council grants.

The community’s feedback is welcome:
