Mission Statement

The mission of the Medway Cultural Council is to support and cultivate the arts in Medway.  To accomplish this, we offer grant funding, program development, and educational opportunities.  Our goal is to provide our community with a wide range of cultural experiences, including art, music, performance, crafts, and traditions from around the world.  We support and encourage local artists and a shared sense of community through cultural appreciation. 

What We Do

The Medway Cultural Council (MedCC) supports public programs that promote access, education, diversity and excellence in the arts, humanities, and interpretive sciences; directly affect the residents of Medway; achieve the greatest community benefit; and cultivate the arts through participation and appreciation. The MedCC receives its annual budget from the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency, as well as from the Town of Medway.  For the fiscal year 2021, MedCC received $6800 for its state allocation and $5000 from the Town of Medway.
