Welcome to the Acton-Boxborough Cultural Council!

The Acton-Boxborough Cultural Council (ABCC) is one of 329 all-volunteer local cultural councils serving every municipality in Massachusetts.  The legislature appropriates funds annually to the Massachusetts Cultural Council (MCC), which then allocates funds to local councils. Local councils use funding guidelines and priorities established by the MCC and may add local guidelines and priorities as well. ABCC then distributes these funds to support performances and cultural activities in and around our towns
