Youth looking at art work

Apply for a Cambridge Arts Grant

Cambridge Arts

As part of the Massachusetts Cultural Council’s Local Cultural Council Program, Cambridge Arts presents annual awards to support arts and culture in the City. The program provides access to professional arts and culture events for Cambridge youth through Field Trip Grants and also supports individual artists and organizations through Project Grants. 

How to Start

  • Grant applications are available in August/September and the application deadline is in October.
  • Project Grants are awarded in two categories: 
    • Creating & Presenting Grants support the development and/or presentation of visual arts, dance, film/video, literature, music, theater, multidisciplinary and new media arts.
    • Education & Access Grants promote in-depth understanding of and participation in the arts.  This category also supports projects that increase participation of populations with limited access to the arts.
  • Field Trip Grants are used to purchase tickets for Cambridge youth (pre-K though grade 12) to attend professional arts and cultural events in or outside of Cambridge.
