MILFORD CULTURAL COUNCIL SEEKING CULTURAL PERFORMERS
MILFORD, Massachusetts (January 23, 2023)—The Milford Cultural Council (MCC) has opened up a call for cultural performers for the Celebrate Milford event in May 2023.
The MCC is excited to collaborate with the Celebrate Milford Committee to bring performances that celebrate the diversity of cultures that exist in and around Milford. A portion of the event, scheduled for May 20, 2023, will include featured performers selected by the MCC. The MCC has allocated funds for the purpose of attracting talented, established singers, dancers, musicians, and other entertainers.
“The greater Milford area boasts a diverse immigrant community and rich ethnic culture. When the council expressed a desire to present a program of entertainment that celebrates different cultures, it seemed a natural fit to partner with the Celebrate Milford committee. We are so pleased to be collaborating with them to add this new event to Celebrate Milford,” noted MCC Chair Geri Eddins.
Singers, dancers, and other forms of entertainers that are representative of a cultural community are sought for the event. Interested performers must apply by March 17, 2023. An online application is available on the Milford Cultural Council page on the Town of Milford website. Go to: MilfordMa.gov/milford-cultural-council and click “CALL TO PERFORMERS” in the left menu panel.
The MCC is part of a network of 329 Local Cultural Councils serving all 351 cities and towns in the Commonwealth. The LCC Program is the largest grassroots cultural funding network in the nation, supporting thousands of community-based projects in the arts, sciences, and humanities every year. The state legislature provides an annual appropriation to the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency, which then allocates funds to each community.
The MCC seeks to promote excellence, inclusion, education and diversity in the arts, humanities, and sciences to foster a rich cultural experience for all Milford residents. The MCC welcomes ideas, recommendations, and feedback regarding programs and events funded or sponsored by the council. Interested Milford residents are encouraged to attend meetings which are held every third Tuesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. typically in Room 14 of Town Hall.
