Massachusetts Cultural Council

For several years now, Herman Melville’s Arrowhead has been generously supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council. Their support is paramount to us and several other local historical and cultural institutions throughout the state. Please take a moment to learn more about them and look for their logo as you travel throughout Berkshire County and beyond.

The Massachusetts Cultural Council (MCC) is a state agency that promotes excellence, access, education, and diversity in the arts, humanities, and interpretive sciences to improve the quality of life for all Massachusetts residents and contribute to the economic vitality of our communities.

The Council pursues this mission through a combination of grant programs, partnerships, and services for nonprofit cultural organizations, schools, communities, and artists.

The Massachusetts Cultural Council is committed to building a central place for the arts, sciences, and humanities in the everyday lives of communities across the Commonwealth.

The arts, sciences, and humanities have the power to build healthier, more livable, more vital communities. They enrich, exalt, and provoke. They are an essential part of a strong educational system. They contribute enormously to our economy. They build bridges across cultures. They can be used to address – or better yet, prevent – some of our most stubborn social problems. They help us interpret our past and shape our future. They help us understand what it means to be human.
