Lancaster Cultural Council Community Input Survey

The Lancaster Cultural Council is group of volunteers, appointed by the Board of Selectmen, working to promote excellence, access and diversity in the arts and humanities in order to improve the quality of life for all Lancaster citizens. We are funded by the Massachusetts Cultural Council and we give grants to individuals, school and non-profit groups.
