Mass Cultural Council to Present at August FRACC Meeting

Updated: Aug 18, 2023

The Fall River Arts & Culture Coalition (FRACC) invites its members and the community to join us for our monthly meeting. We are pleased to announce our special guests for August — the Mass Cultural Council and SouthCoast Community Foundation!

A panel of representatives from the Mass Cultural Council will be available to answer your questions and explain upcoming grant opportunities, including Pandemic Recovery programs, STARS, Public Programming Grants, the Cultural Facilities Fund, and Local Cultural Council grants.

All artists, performers, creatives, funders, supporters, and more are encouraged not to miss this momentous occasion. This convening of six Mass Cultural Council staff members represents a significant investment and effort to highlight and connect with Fall River.

Also in attendance will be Leonard Lee, the New President and CEO SouthCoast Community Foundation. He brings over 30 years of expertise in public, private, and nonprofit sectors — including leadership roles committed to advancing public health and advocating for historically underrepresented, marginalized communities.

Not to be missed!
