About the Council


Mission


The Ipswich Cultural Council connects and supports art, culture and community through access, education, advocacy and celebration.

The Ipswich Cultural Council is a Local Cultural Council (LCC) and part of municipal government with the members of the Council appointed by the Board of Selectmen. The funds for the grants are an allocation of public dollars from the state through the MCC (Massachusetts Cultural Council) provided by the Governor and State Legislature. The council also does some additional fundraising to benefit the grant allocations.

Ipswich Art Show and Illumination

This year the Arts and Illumination weekend is September 29th, 30th and October 1, 2017. Check the Ipswich Cultural (ICC) Facebook page for updates and details.  A link to an application for artists entering the Art Show are available on the ICC Facebook page. The deadline for submission is Tuesday, September 19th, 2017.

Illumination Night is scheduled for Saturday, September 30th with a rain date of October 1, detailed information will be on the ICC Facebook page and posted around town soon.

With weather cooperating this year we have once again been granted permission to float the bonfires on the river.  Please join us for the family-friendly event starting with a Pops Concert by the Riverwalk mural at 6:00 PM ... followed by more music, food, dancing, and bonfires all along the river to Town Hall and the Green Street bridge.  It is recommended that you bring a small flashlight for darker portions of the path. 

We hope you will join us for a special weekend celebrating the Arts in Ipswich!
