Each year, the Brewster Cultural Council receives approximately $6500 in state funds to help support local artists and cultural programming. Another $1000 is funded through the Town’s operating budget. In 2022, the Cultural Council awarded funding to 13 individuals and organizations.
We want to alert residents and visitors to a number of free events supported by the Cultural Council this summer:
- Sunday July 3 (1-2PM) at Crocker Nursery: Beyond the Bounds, with Brewster resident Naomi Steckman on the cello surrounded by other musicians connecting art, nature and humanity. Check them out at www.beyondtheboundscapecod.org.
- Tuesday July 5 (2PM) at Brewster Library: The Places You”ll Go, a summer story and song celebration by Davis Bates and Roger Tincknell.
- Saturday July 9 at Drummer Boy Park (Brewster Conservation Day): Artists Jess Georges, owner of Green Road refill in Foster Square, and Alejandra Cuadra from Kemp Pottery at the Art in Action tent. With your help, we’ll all create a community sculpture using plastic waste. There will be opportunities for children, who will be recognized as “Plastic Waste Warriors”. In the spirit of the day, bring unrecyclable plastic with you from home, or better yet, bring a bucket the next time you’re walking on the beach or marsh and collect some waste to contribute. We’ll be doing some collecting right at Drummer Boy Park the week before at low tides.
- Wednesday July 20 (3:30 PM) at Eastham Library: Premiere of Brewster resident Lee Roscoe’s film 4 Plays for a Planet in Peril. The film was a finalist in the 2022 Independent Shorts Award. https://easthamlibrary.libcal.com/event/9256679fbclid=IwAR1Fe9boXtPajV8FNZ75cxwW3XcR1crwsqpNX1JGlX9ViFn0gTt13scYym0
The Council’s goal is to offer community wide activities highlighting the role that culture, broadly defined, enhances our appreciation of nature and each other, to create a sense of community that is so critical to Brewster. We are working to get the word out about the cultural assets that exist in the town, and to connect with artists of all types and residents who want to support what makes Brewster special. If you want to find out more or have conversations on what you’d like to see happen in Town, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Meanwhile, reduce waste, appreciate nature, and enjoy art.
