Join the Westport Cultural Council

Membership on the Westport Cultural Council - one vacancy at present

Are you a resident of Westport who values the arts, history, and creative life in our town?  As a volunteer member of the Westport Cultural Council you will be part of an active committee of nine who support artists, musicians, dancers, theater groups, historians, educators, naturalists, and others seeking funding for cultural events and programs. The WCC, a committee of the Town of Westport and funded through the Massachusetts Cultural Council, administers two       important grant programs: the state Local Cultural Council program and grant funds awarded by the  Helen E. Ellis Charitable Trust, Bank of America.

Volunteers are appointed by the Selectment to a three-year term, and are required to attend monthly meetings throughout the year and serve as a contact for programs funded by the WCC. Meetings are currently scheduled for the first Wednesday of the month, and it is important that you be able to attend on a regular basis. WCC welcomes people with energy, creativity, and ideas; artistic talent or experience is not a prerequisite. It's a highly gratifying and creative  volunteer opportunity.  WCC invites you to attend a monthly meeting to learn more.  

To apply, attend a meeting of the WCC, send a letter requesting appointment to the Westport Cultural Council to the Board of Selectman, Town of Westport, 816 Main Road, Westport, MA 02790. Your letter should describe your interest and qualifications. WCC members are happy to provide more information and answer any questions you may have - please contact the Council by mail or email.
