The Marlborough Cultural Council is a part of municipal government with the members of the Council appointed by the Mayor. The funds for the grants are an allocation of public dollars from the state provided by the Governor and State Legislature.
The mission of the Cultural Council is to promote excellence, access, education and diversity in the arts, humanities and sciences in order to improve the quality of life for Marlborough residents and to contribute to the economic vitality of our community.
Meetings are held as necessary and are posted on-line and at the City clerk’s office
