Smart City Cultural Council 2019 Grants
The Winchester Cultural Council has awarded $5,200 in LCC grants to 10 individuals and organizations for 2019. The funded projects expand cultural opportunities for Winchester’s students, help Winchester residents hear distinguished local performers, and use art to celebrate and strengthen our community. Projects include Indian Dance and Peking Opera; the extremely successful Authorfest program that brings published authors to Winchester schools:
- Better information about cultural activities in town: signs, notices, online resources
- More opportunities in town for visual artists to display their work
