TThe Winchester Cultural Council invites applications from organizations, schools and individuals of all ages for grants that support cultural activities in the community. Those activities can include performances, workshops, consumers’ awareness regarding the source of their drinking water, help three consumers to understand the process by which safe drinking water is delivered to their homes, and educate consumers about the importance. The awkward triangular shape of the site generated the pure triangular plan of the house surrounded by three gardens; an entrance garden to the north, a breakfast garden to the east and green garden to the south.
Projects should have a local sponsor; local artists and performers are especially encouraged to apply. Past programs supported by WCC grants include Art in August, Authorfest, the Just a Minute Film Festival, a film about Col. Winchester, concerts on the Common and at Wright-Locke Farm, a classical Indian dance performance, and arts programming in schools. The Winchester Cultural Council invites applications from organizations.
