he mission of the Lowell Cultural Council (LCC) is to promote excellence, access, education and diversity in the arts, humanities, and interpretive sciences in order to improve the quality of life for all Lowell residents and to contribute to the economic vitality of the community through the re-granting of public monies awarded to the LCC by the Massachusetts Cultural Council (MCC).

The Lowell Cultural Council is an agent of the Massachusetts Cultural Council which receives funding from the Massachusetts Legislature and the National Endowment for the Arts. Distributions are based on a local aid formula devised by the state and are not determined by the individual municipality.


Commission meetings are held ad-hoc, as deemed necessary by the Commission Chairperson. Notice of meetings is posted at least two days in advance of the meeting on the bulletin board outside of City Hall in the JFK Plaza, and on the City of Lowell's online Event Calendar.
