The purpose of the Carlisle Cultural Council (CCC) is to promote the arts, music, history, culture and the humanities. Our goal is to serve our community by supporting and producing both participatory and audience-based cultural and arts activities which benefit local residents.
The Carlisle Cultural Council is currently a 9-member appointed group of Carlisle residents who support local cultural initiatives and vote on local grant applications.
The CCC supports local cultural initiatives through a grant award process established by the Massachusetts Cultural Council that provides funds to deserving organizations and individuals to offer a variety of cultural experiences to the residents of Carlisle. The Council also produces its own programs.
The Carlisle Cultural Council meets at least once per month. Meetings are posted on the Town Calendar and Agendas are linked to the calendar and posted in the Agenda and Meetings Center in compliance with Open Meeting Law. Currently conducted via web meeting technology. Check the Town meetings and events calendar for meeting dates and times.
The term of membership for a council member is three years; members can serve a maximum of two consecutive terms, or a total of six years, unless appointing authority removes a member before the expiration of a term as provided in 962 CML 2.10. Members must remain off the council for a one-year interval before serving additional terms.
To preserve continuity of operations, the terms of individual council members should be staggered (that is, there should never be 100 percent turnover of members in a single year, unless the MCCdetermines otherwise, as provided in 962 CMR 2.10). Local councils may also elect to designate former officers or members as non-voting, ex officio council members.
