Hopkinton Cultural Council

Hopkinton, Massachusetts

The purpose of the Hopkinton Cultural Council (HCC) is to support public programs in the arts, humanities and interpretive sciences which promote access, education, diversity and excellence for residents of our community. This is accomplished by granting funds received from the Massachusetts Cultural Council (MCC), in accordance with their guidelines, to individuals and organizations that will present their programs in our community or local area. We fund a variety of programs each year appropriate for diverse age and interest groups. Whenever possible we give priority to Hopkinton artists and organizations. The HCC actively seeks opportunities to increase visibility to groups of different cultures to promote diverse grant opportunities. 

Upcoming Events

Hopkinton Cultural Council is seeking artists to extend and grow our Celebration of Diversity Mural in Hopkinton.  We are adding 3 to 5 new segments this year.  We are looking to create a footprint of this moment in our town’s history as we embrace its growing diversity and character.  Themes may include, but are not limited to, Indigenous culture, women’s history, and individuals with differing abilities.  All ideas and artistic interpretations of diversity are welcome for submission.  Open to working with single or multiple artists. Mural is located on the wooden fence leading from Rt 85 into EMC Park.  Segments 8 foot wide x 7 foot tall.   Media must be long-lived and weather resistant.
