Mayor Carlo DeMaria recently announced that the City of Everett is actively seeking applicants to join the Cultural Council. This opportunity might interest individuals who support and take interest in the programs throughout the city oriented towards the arts, humanities and recreation. The Cultural Council creates opportunities for funding that allow residents to host events pertaining to the above subjects. Members will be appointed by the Mayor and will serve for a three-year term. Members are allowed a maximum of two consecutive terms as Cultural Council volunteers (total of six years) and may serve again after a one-year break.
“As Mayor, it has always been important for me to make sure that my administration offers a variety of cultural programs, events, and opportunities for our residents. Funding from these grants will allow the City to continue to build upon its cultural needs,” said DeMaria.
Culture and arts are an important part of our community, and the grants allow us to host events such as exhibits, festivals, field trips and short-term artist residencies, as well as performances in schools, lectures and workshops. DeMaria continues to integrate arts and culture into the community, and the Everett Cultural Council will help with this task immensely. Those seeking to apply can contact Deanna Deveney at Deanna.firstname.lastname@example.org.
