Many of these projects bring an arts discipline to a new audience, complement the education of our young people, or connect artists' work to everyday life. They promote the uniqueness of a community, foster community pride, bring people together, and provide a sense of celebration for the community. Our mission is that. The Local Cultural Council of Nantucket grants connect people and places in creative, dynamic, and exciting ways, that help strengthen the social fiber of our community and improve the quality of life. The Council seeks out programming that is serves our community and is especially interested in supporting programming so it can be offered free, or at a low cost to the community.
