The Bedford Cultural Council suggests several community service opportunities that could qualify for grants in the Council’s current round of funding.
Healthy Communities Initiatives
Art/craft groups and individuals might consider the Bedford Food Bank and the town’s social workers as a distribution channel for items like mittens, scarves, and blankets if those goods are intended as gifts for the Bedford community.
Interested artists and crafters may also want to look into applying for a BCC grant to decorate the “parklet” on The Great Road in front of Ken’s Deli. To learn more about art for the parklet, contact Ms. Olson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Pop-up Art Exhibits at Bedford Businesses
Anyone interested in creating or donating pop-up art that could be displayed at or in front of businesses should contact Alyssa Sandoval, Bedford’s economic development director, email@example.com.
Bedford Cultural Council Grants can Support Individual or Community Projects
Bedford Cultural Council grants are available to fund community-helping-community endeavors. Groups and individuals may apply for a Cultural Council grant covering reimbursement for supplies to be used in creating such helping-the-community projects.
The application period for the next round of BCC grants ends on November 16. Further information and the application form may be found at https://www.mass-culture.org/bedford.
If you have an idea for pop-up or public art or a community project that you would like to pursue, please contact Barbara Purchia, firstname.lastname@example.org.
